Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
Books by Women starts back up in September with the novel Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. Moving and gracefully told, this novel follows a family in Korea, beginning in the 1900s, and their experiences of betrayal, shame, marriage; exile to Japan; and the pursuit of their passions amidst discrimination and poverty. This novel tackles endearing questions of faith, family, and identity.
Paperback; 512 pages
