Dear Librarians,

March 9th, 1945: American bombers shower Tokyo with incendiaries, leaving 100,000 dead and a city in ashes. THE GODS OF HEAVENLY PUNISHMENT explores this oft-overlooked moment through characters on both sides of the war: an architect; his lover; a bomber pilot; his wife; an occupation officer harboring a dark secret; and Yoshi Kobayashi, a girl who survives the attack but must also survive its consequences. Japanese or American, their lives will intersect through this profoundly devastating moment in wartime history.
