A huge novel in which the author has succeeded in including almost every human experience! The main characters are Korean. The sections of the novel dealing with the older generation's culture and their experiences of America, including the importance of their church in their lives, are among the most interesting.
The Korean origins of the second generation become blurred as they struggle with education and careers in modern New York. The world of high finance and high fashion are also well described.
A great title; the significance of which which becomes clear in the book.
