In a small fishing village on the banks of the East Sea, a club-footed, cleft-lipped man marries a fifteen-year-old girl. The couple have one child, their beloved daughter Sunja. When Sunja falls pregnant by a married yakuza, the family face ruin. But then Isak, a Christian minister, offers her a chance of salvation: a new life in Japan as his wife. Following a man she barely knows to a hostile country in which she has no friends, no home, and whose language she cannot speak, Sunja's salvation is just the beginning of her story. Pachinko is an epic tale of family, identity, love, death and survival.
If you found yourself thinking about the story of Sunja long after you finished reading, then you will welcome these other thoughtful offerings of those who face displacement from their homes, traditions and all that they hold dear to face a new path and reckon with how a homeland can define you.
