Chang-rae Lee was the first Korean-American novelist brought out by a major American publisher. He’s made publishers and readers happy ever since with his critically-acclaimed “Native Speaker,” “A Gesture Life,” and “Aloft.”
Now, Chang-rae Lee is taking on the wages of war, the Korean War, and how they echo through lives — Korean lives, American lives — nearly forever.
When we go to war, we go to a brutal place. And we bring it home, wherever that home may be.
This hour, On Point: Chang-rae Lee and his new novel of war, “The Surrendered.”
