    The book 'So far from the bamboo grove' written by Japanese-American author has been kicked out from the Queens Middle school N.Y and the public middle school in Maryland. The California state government also withdrew the book from the teaching material list.

    For long the book was in the center of controversy wether the book was distorting the fact.

    The book elaborately distorted the pain and suffers of the war and glamorized Japanese warmongers while portraying Koreans as villains.

    Anyhow the withdrawal of the 'So far from the bamboo grove' from the teaching material list of the middle schools in La is a meaningful event.
