    A Surprising New World

    I found this a really surprising book, and not just because I didn't know much about Korean-American culture. So it was interesting to think about what a marriage between a Korean woman and an African American would be like, but what Yuliana Kim-Grant does is to make that marriage feel completely natural and universal, filled with joys and difficulties that anyone of us can understand. Then she places that marriage within a swirl of competing racial attitudes in the families of the spouses. But just when you think it's going to be a book about racial difficulties, it turns into a book about mothers and daughters, parents and children. And then she brings all these threads back together in a couple of quiet scenes of healing and generosity. Amazing. Maybe a little too quiet and restrained for its own good, so only four stars, but I can't wait to see what she does next.

    Highly recommend

    I expected a "lighter" read when I started this - happily surprised at what a solid piece it is - so mamy issues addressed - parenting,generational challenges, racial differences up and down the age scale, love and tolerance of completely different outlooks... Though it's a novel, it reads a lot like what I LIKE in memoirs - the journal entries interspersed - has emotional pulls any parent will recognize.
