By Angela Ledgerwood, host of Lit Up, a podcast about books, writers, and all things literary

Thirty years in the making, Lee’s sweeping, multi-generational novel is set in 1900s Asia and is informed by stories she heard about legal and social discrimination against Koreans in Japan, a history largely denied and erased.
