Description
This paper deals with two American novels set on Okinawa, Gift of a Blue Ball (2007)and Katsuren( 2009) on the purpose of analyzing how American authors describe Okinawa andOkinawans. Both works function to represent Okinawa as a tourist spot rather than a militaryfortified island or a nightmarish battle ground.
