In 1954,  29-year-old grad student Dick Jorgensen went to Japan as one of four “ambassador” teachers in a first-ever exchange program. He spent the next two years teaching at the University of Hiroshima, founded in the wake of the atomic bombing of the city in 1945. Living with Japanese families, he was forced to find new ways to reach students ravaged by World War II.

 

O Tomodachi (Japanese for "friend") gives readers a wonderful sense of a young American living and working in a foreign land -- one that had only recently been the enemy of the United States.
