SPONSORED BY THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PTOS

"Pachinko" by Min Jin Lee 

“Beginning in 1910 during the time of Japanese colonialization and ending many decades
later in 1989, Pachinko is the epic saga of a Korean family told over four generations.
The family’s story starts with Hoonie, a young Korean man born with physical deformities,
but whose destiny comes from his inner strength and kindness. Hoonie’s daughter, rather
than bring shame on her family, leaves their homeland for Japan, where her children and
grandchildren will be born and raised; yet prejudice against their Korean heritage will
prevent them from ever feeling at home. In Pachinko, Min Jin Lee says much about success
and suffering, prejudice and tradition, but the novel never bogs down and only becomes
richer, like a sauce left simmering hour after hour. Lee’s exceptional story of one family
is the story of many of the world’s people. They ask only for the chance to belong somewhere
and to be judged by their hearts and actions rather than by ideas of blood traits and bad
seeds.” --Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review
