"My Postwar Life: New Writings From Japan and Okinawa" edited by Elizabeth Mc- Kenzie (Chicago Quarterly Review Books, $19.95, 328 pages). Santa Cruz editor Elizabeth McKenzie draws on works by dozens of Japanese artists and writers in this new anthology exploring responses to war in short fiction, poetry and photography from World War II to the present. The contributions -- ranging from Shomei Tomatsu's searing images of the Nagasaki aftermath to Hiroshi Fukurai's "Disaster Memories" of Fukushima -- offer richly varied views of a country that has endured the unspeakable.
