MIN JIN LEE with GINA HADLEY

 

A decade after her internationally-acclaimed debut novel, Free Food for Millionaires, Min Jin Lee makes this welcome return with a powerful novel of twentieth-century exile, Pachinko (Bloomsbury USA).

Pachinko is elegant and soulful, both intimate and sweeping. This story of several generations of one Korean family in Japan is the story of every family whose parents sacrificed for their children, every family whose children were unable to recognize the cost, but it’s also the story of a specific cultural struggle in a riveting time and place. Min Jin Lee has written a big, beautiful book filled with characters I rooted for and cared about and remembered after I’d read the final page.” – Kate Christensen.  

“Luminous…a powerful meditation on what immigrants sacrifice to achieve a home in the world. This story confirms Lee’s place among our finest novelists.” –Junot Díaz.
