In her critically acclaimed debut, National Book Award finalist Min Jin Lee introduces the indelible Casey Han: a strong-willed, Queens-bred daughter of Korean immigrants who is addicted to a glamorous Manhattan lifestyle she cannot afford. Fresh out of Princeton with an economics degree, no job, and a popular white boyfriend, Casey is determined to carve a space for herself in the glittering world she craves-but at what cost?
Lee's bestselling, sharp-eyed, sweeping epic of love, greed, and hunger-set in a landscape where millionaires scramble for the free lunches the poor are too proud to accept-is an addictively readable, startlingly sympathetic portrait of intergenerational strife and immigrant struggle, exposing the intricate layers of a community clinging to its old ways in a city packed with haves and have-nots.

A beautiful, fascinating book
I was immediately drawn in. The characters are lovely and interesting and the author lets you see them in all their propriety and impropriety. A novel about talent and love and goals and aesthetics. For everyone.
When it ended, I gasped. I wanted more. A great read. The characters were people that you wanted to meet. I have never felt that before. This deserves a Part II..
