The Last Story of Mina Lee by Nancy Jooyoun Kim

Synopsis

In 1987, Mina Lee flies from Seoul to Los Angeles to start a new life.

Thirty years later, Margot Lee speaks to her mother for the last time. Between these two moments extends a lifetime of secrets.

These are stories of unexpected loves and devastating losses. Of choices made and those left behind. Of a mother and daughter who have always struggled to understand each other. These are stories waiting to be told, before it's too late.

Reminiscent of Celeste Ng's page-turning meditations on identity, this searing mother-daughter story explores the diverse and unsettling realities of being an immigrant in America.

Reviews

'Suspenseful and deeply felt... raises questions about the reality of the American dream and illuminates stories that often go untold' Chloe Benjamin

'Painful, joyous... A story that cries out to be told' LA Times

 'Carefully illuminates the two sides of the silence between a Korean immigrant mother and her Korean American daughter, a silence only too familiar to many of us - and emerges with a stunningly powerful and original novel' Alexander Chee

'A timely, important novel... Fans of Celeste Ng won't be able to put down this heartfelt, cross-generational novel about the powerful bond and fragility of family and what it really means to strive for the "American dream"' POPSUGAR
