Min Jin Lee recommends
thumb
The Weird Sisters (2011)
Eleanor Brown
"Eleanor Brown has written a compelling novel about love, despair and birth order-the themes the Bard himself had claimed and burnished."
thumb
Paris by the Book (2018)
Liam Callanan
"Liam Callanan's Paris by the Book is much more than an elegiac portrait of an artist who has vanished. Here we witness the sacrifices and yearnings of the ones left behind as they continue to love, live, and flourish. Like James Salter's Light Years, Callanan depicts the once seemingly simple conditions of a young marriage and what it takes to let such conditions go."
thumb
A River of Stars (2018)
Vanessa Hua
"Vanessa Hua’s compelling A River of Stars is a story of resistance, survival, and self-determination in a world that is seemingly indifferent to the needs of the poor and disenfranchised."
thumb
The Kinship of Secrets (2018)
Eugenia Kim
"The Kinship of Secrets is a beautiful allegory of loss and recovery. Through the parallel growth of two separated sisters, Kim bears witness to the fall and rise of nation and its resilient and generous people. The Kinship of Secrets is a gorgeous achievement."
