Description

The brilliant debut novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of Pachinko.

‘Ambitious, accomplished, engrossing… As easy to devour as a nineteenth-century romance’ NEW YORK TIMES.

Casey Han’s years at Princeton have given her a refined diction, an enviable golf handicap, a popular white boyfriend and a degree in economics. But no job, and a number of bad habits.

The elder daughter of working-class Korean immigrants, Casey inhabits a New York a world away from that of her parents. As Casey navigates an uneven course of small triumphs and spectacular failures, a clash of values and ambitions plays out against the colourful backdrop of New York society, its many shades and divides.

‘Explores the most fundamental crisis of immigrants’ children: how to bridge a generation gap so wide it is measured in oceans’Observer.

‘A remarkable writer’The Times.
