Pachinko by Min Jin Lee


Sunja is born to loving and poor parents in a small Korean fishing village. As a teenager, she falls in lust with a married, Japanese yakuza. A minister offers her and her unborn child a new beginning in Japan as his wife. And what a beginning it is. Lee writes of the racism between Korea and Japan, and how it crept into the layers of everyday life. She also writes about love, war, regret, and history.
