White Chrysanthemum's 'Comfort Women'

From Nine To Noon, 10:06 am on 8 February 2018

In 2002, Mary Lynn Bracht visited her mother's childhood village, and first learned of the Korean sex slaves set-up for the Japanese military during WWII. It was to be the inspiration for her debut novel, White Chrysanthemum, about two sisters Hana and Emi, cruelly separated by war. The book is already being compared with Memoirs of Geisha and the rights were snapped up within 24 hours of its completion.
