Requiem was originally published in 2011 and was chosen as the top fiction title by The Washington Post in 2012. Requiem follows the story of Ben Okri, a recent widower who is sent on a journey through his past and across Canada to visit his father. As a child, Ben and his family were held in a Japanese internment camp during World War II in the interior of British Columbia. As does Canada, Ben has to come to grips with his own painful history and move forward to build a new life for himself.
