Hiroshima Traces

Lisa Yoneyama

University of California Press

This chapter examines how the cultural criticism strategy called mnemonic detours operates over the cityscape through the storytellings of Hiroshima survivors, explaining that the stories of the survivors include nonteleolological, detoured courses of their thoughts and lives before and after the bombing. It also discusses the unsettling effects of the frozen time that appears in the storytellers' retellings of the moment of destruction.

Keywords:   mnemonic detours, cultural criticism, cityscape, Hiroshima survivors, frozen time, moment of destruction
