'Stunning ... Pachinko is about outsiders, minorities and the politically disenfranchised. But it is so much more besides. Each time the novel seems to find its locus - Japan's colonization of Korea, World War II as experienced in East Asia, Christianity, family, love, the changing role of women - it becomes something else. It becomes even more than it was' * New York Times *
'A deep, broad, addictive history of a Korean family in Japan enduring and prospering through the 20th century' -- David Mitchell, Guardian
'Luminous ... a powerful meditation on what immigrants sacrifice to achieve a home in the world' -- Junot Diaz
'A long novel, but it never feels it - Min Jin Lee's storytelling is effortless' * Stylist, Pick of the best new books for 2017 *
'Gripping ... a stunning achievement, full of heart, full of grace, full of truth' -- Erica Wagner
'The work of a writer in complete control of her characters and her story and with an intense awareness of the importance of her heritage ... Told with such flair and linguistic dexterity that I found myself unable to put it down. Every year, there are a few standout novels that survive long past the hype has died down and the hyperbolic compliments from friends scattered across the dust jacket have been forgotten. Pachinko, a masterpiece of empathy, integrity and familial loyalty, will be one of those novels' -- John Boyne, Irish Times
'We never feel history being spoon-fed to us: it is wholly absorbed into character and story, which is no mean feat for a novel covering almost a century of history' * Financial Times *
'An epic, multi-generational saga' * Mail on Sunday, Best of 2017 *
'A great book, a passionate story, a novel of magisterial sweep. It's also fiendishly readable - the real deal. An instant classic, a quick page-turner, and probably the best book of the year' -- Darin Strauss, New York Times-bestselling author of Chang and Eng.
'A long, complex book, it wears its research lightly, and is a page-turner. You can sense the author's love and understanding for all the characters, the good and the flawed' * Irish Examiner. *
Remarkable ... A striking introduction to lives, to a world, [the reader] may never have seen, or even thought to look at. In our increasingly fractured and divisive times, there can be no higher purpose for literature: all in the pages of a book that, once you've started, you'll simply be unable to put down' * Harper's Bazaar *
'Elegant and soulful, both intimate and sweeping. This story of several generations of one Korean family in Japan is the story of every family whose parents sacrificed for their children, every family whose children were unable to recognize the cost, but it's also the story of a specific cultural struggle in a riveting time and place. Min Jin Lee has written a big, beautiful book filled with characters I rooted for and cared about and remembered after I'd read the final page' -- Kate Christensen, award-winning author of The Great Man and Blue Plate Special
