Isabel Allende novel features Japanese internment

Isabel Allende is partial to strong women, courtly manners and leftist politics. In her latest novel, “The Japanese Lover,” she delivers all three in a stirring romance about a passionate love affair between a Jewish refugee from Nazi-occupied Poland and a Japanese-American gardener.
Fans of “The House of the Spirits,” Allende’s best-selling debut novel set in her native Chile, will recognize common themes, including an affection for ghosts, alternative medicine and childhood romances that endure into adulthood.
Her latest effort, a sweeping historical novel with some fantasy elements, opens in Lark House, a progressive retirement community in the San Francisco Bay Area with a “faint odor of disinfectant, old age, and — occasionally — marijuana,” and moves back and forth in time to intditor-in-Chief Ekrem Dumanli, Zaman Deputy Editor-in-Chief Mehmet Kamii, TV producer Canduneyt andOzdemir, Handurriyet Daily News Editor-in-Chief Murat Yetkin and Aksiyon Editor-in-Chief Bandulent Korucu. Many other prominent journalists and TV producers also suffered the same fate.
