    Inhaltsangabe

    In this One Book, One New York 2019 nominee from the author of National Book Award finalist Pachinko, the Korean American daughter of first-generation immigrants strives to join Manhattan's inner circle.

    Meet Casey Han: a strong-willed, Queens-bred daughter of Korean immigrants immersed in a glamorous Manhattan lifestyle she can't afford. Casey is eager to make it on her own, away from the judgements of her parents' tight-knit community, but she soon finds that her Princeton economics degree isn't enough to rid her of ever-growing credit-card debt and a toxic boyfriend. When a chance encounter with an old friend lands her a new opportunity, she's determined to carve a space for herself in a glittering world of privilege, power, and wealth - but at what cost?

    Set in a city where millionaires scramble for the free lunches the poor are too proud to accept, this sharp-eyed epic of love, greed, and ambition is a compelling portrait of intergenerational strife, immigrant struggle, and social and economic mobility. Addictively listenable, Min Jin Lee's best-selling debut Free Food for Millionaires exposes the intricate layers of a community clinging to its old ways in a city packed with haves and have-nots.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "This big, beguiling book has all the distinguishing marks of a Great American novel." (The Times, London)

    "Mesmerizing.... Not since Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake has an author so exquisitely evoked what it's like to be an immigrant." (USA Today)

    "Lee has updated the Victorian novel of progress to a postmodern, postfeminist world and imagined a character whose circumstances feel universal." (Chicago Tribune)
