Summary
The daughter of Korean immigrants, Casey Han has refined diction, a closeted passion for reading the Bible, a popular white boyfriend, and a magna cum laude degree in economics from Princeton, but no job and an addiction to the things she cannot afford in the glittering world of Manhattan. In this critically-acclaimed debut, Min Jin Lee tells not only Casey's story, but also those of her sheltered mother, scarred father, and friends both Korean and Caucasian, exposing the astonishing layers of a community clinging to its old ways and a city packed with struggling haves and have-nots
Summary
Having become thoroughly indoctrinated in the ways of American life through her Princeton education, Casey Han struggles between the expensive lifestyle she enjoys and the traditional culture to which her Korean immigrant parents desperately cling
