"He wanted to be, to be just himself, whatever that meant; he wanted to forget himself sometimes." - S. 341
Ein tolles Buch, welches einen in eine andere Kultur hineinzieht! Ich konnte es fadt garnicht aus der Hand legen!

* One of the New York Times's 10 Best Books of 2017 *
Yeongdo, Korea 1911. 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.
Through eight decades and four generations, Pachinko is an epic tale of family, identity, love, death and survival.
