Topaz examines the experiences of a Japanese American family separated and incarcerated in World War II prison camps and considers how this incarceration affected the family. Moreover, this collection delves into the lasting impact of this imprisonment on future generations. The speaker of these poems seeks to understand his identity—as son, father, and husband—as it intertwines with the past and present.
