About This Book
Following "Pachinko", which returned in a new translation in 2022, "Free Food for Millionaires", the first novel in Lee Min-jin's "Korean Diaspora" trilogy, is again looking for Korean readers. Published in 2007, it was highly praised for vividly capturing the stories of Koreans in the United States, which the American society had not paid attention to at the time.
Set in New York in the 1990s, it tells the story of Casey Han, a second-generation Korean immigrant woman, her sister Tina Han, and her friend Ella Sim.
Whether in Manhattan, which looks glamorous at first glance, in heartless Wall Street, or in Queens, where the tiredness of immigrants is felt, the lives of half-Korean and half-Americans are never easy. The delicately depicted conflict between generations, between classes, and between men and women resonates in the hearts of readers even in 2022.
Like her main character, Casey, the novel also drew attention as a novel that contains the autobiographical experiences of writer Lee Min-jin, who immigrated to the United States with her parents at a young age.
