Synopses & Reviews
Not since "Angela's Ashes" has there been a story about childhood told with so much poignancy and triumph over the odds as Elizabeth Kim's harrowing memoir. A mixed-race bastard, Elizabeth witnessed the hanging murder of her mother in their small Korean hut before being dumped like garbage at a Christian orphanage in postwar Seoul. Unflinching in her narration, Kim tells of her sorrows and joys with a steady and riveting voice.
