This is a novel about survivors of the atomic bombing of HIroshima. The author and her husband, Ira Morris, founded a rest house in Hiroshima for survivors. Pursuant to her request, the Hiroshima Foundation for Peace and Culture was founded after her death to support efforts towards peace and reconciliation.

As August 6 is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, I plan to leave this by Henry Moore's Nuclear Energy sculpture, on Ellis Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets.

This is near the site of the first self-sustaining, controlled nuclear chain reaction, which occurred in a squash court under the bleachers of the now-demolished Stagg Field. (Regenstein Library is there now.)
