Mira Stout: One Thousand Chestnut Trees

Mira Stout: One Thousand Chestnut Trees(Flamingo, 1997)

Absorbing and very moving book in which the narrator pursues her family history through turbulent twentieth-century Korea. Quite a good introduction to modern Korean history if you’ve never read a history book, but this novel’s much more than that.
