A third-generation Japanese-Canadian, Lynne Kutsukake earned a Masters in East Asian Studies from the University of Toronto and studied Japanese literature in Japan, eventually becoming a librarian in Toronto. Her short fiction has appeared in The Dalhousie Review, Grain, The Windsor Review, Ricepaper and Prairie Fire. She was a finalist for the Journey Prize in 2010. The Translation of Love is her first novel, an emotionally gripping portrait of postwar Japan, where a newly repatriated girl must help a classmate find her missing sister.
