“Pachinko” by Min Jin Lee, a finalist for the National Book Award, is an “absorbing saga of 20th-century Korean experience.” Sujna, the only surviving child of a poor family, works dutifully in her mother’s boarding house until she becomes pregnant by one of the guests. Another boarder—a sickly but kindly pastor—marries her and takes her to Japan. “As the destinies of Sunja’s children and grandchildren unfold, love, luck, and talent combine with cruelty and random misfortune in a deeply compelling story” (Kirkus Reviews).
