Min Jin Lee

It’s been a whole decade since Min Jin Lee debuted with Free Food For Millionaires. Now she’s back with her long-awaited second novel, a sweeping 500-page epic about four generations of Koreans. (Pachinko is a Japanese gambling game, if you were wondering.) The book begins in 1910, the year that Japan annexed Korea, and an aging fisherman’s wife gives birth to a son. The son gets married, has a daughter, the daughter marries a tubercular pastor, they move to Japan, and so on. Oh, and in Dickensian form, there’s a sinister millionaire lurking around every corner. The book’s out Tuesday, but Literary Hub has an excerpt.
