I recently finished a wonderful book.
Still Life With Rice is the story of a Korean woman retold (in the first person) by her first generation Korean-American granddaughter. It is an extraordinarily interesting account of the grandmother’s challenging life in Korea. Beginning pre-war and wrapping up in the early 1990s, the narrative sheds light on the culture and history of the nation we currently call home. If you’re looking for a good read or are at all interested in Korean history, this is a book I’d highly recommend.
