In six unforgettable, incantatory sections, the novel traces their new lives as "icture brides": the arduous voyage by boat, where the girls trade photos of their husbands and imagine uncertain futures in an unknown land ... their arrival in San Francisco and the tremulous first nights with their new husbands, backbreaking toil as migrant workers in the fields and in the homes of white women ... the struggle to learn a new language and culture, giving birth and raising children who come to reject their heritage, and, finally, the arrival of war, and the agonizing prospect of their internment

Certaines n'avaient jamais vu la mer by Julie Otsuka( Recording )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les voix et les vies que Julie Otsuka décrit ici sont celles de ces Japonaises venues, au début du XXe siècle, épouser, aux Etats-Unis, un de ces hommes qui font arriver par paquebots entiers ces femmes choisies ", sur catalogue ". D'eux, elles ne connaissent que des photos et des C.V. truqués, et se retrouvent souvent face à des maris brutaux qui les traitent en esclaves. Plutôt que de s'attacher à un destin unique emblématique des autres, Julie Otsuka opte pour de multiples voix qui racontent, tel un choeur antique, la tragédie de toutes et de chacune : leur misérable vie d'exilées, leur combat pour apprivoiser une langue inconnue, le racisme des Blancs, le rejet par leur progéniture de leur patrimoine... Puis le grand choc de la guerre. Et l'oubli. [4e de couverture]

C'est là, dans une petite ville perdue de l'Oural, qu'ils vont faire une troublante découverte: un autre enfant mort dans les mêmes conditions que l'"accident de Moscou".
