Summary
A True Novel begins in New York in the 1960s, where we meet Taro, a relentlessly ambitious Japanese immigrant trying to make his fortune. Flashbacks and multilayered stories reveal his life: an impoverished upbringing as an orphan, his eventual rise to wealth and success{u2014}despite racial and class prejudice{u2014}and an obsession with a girl from an affluent family that has haunted him all his life. A True Novel then widens into an examination of Japan{u2019}s westernization and the emergence of a middle class
