Empire of the Sun is our October Book Club Selection, the classic award-winning novel made famous by Steven Spielberg's film of the same name. The novel takes place in Shanghai in 1941 and tells of a young boy's struggle to survive World War II in China, including deprivation and starvation, internment camps and death marches.
