Pachinko: The New York Times Bestseller Paperback – 13 March 2020

'Luminous ... a powerful meditation on what immigrants sacrifice to achieve a home in the world' -- Junot Diaz

'Gripping ... a stunning achievement, full of heart, full of grace, full of truth' -- Erica Wagner

'A deep, broad, addictive history of a Korean family in Japan enduring and prospering through the 20th century' -- David Mitchell, Guardian

'A rich, moving novel about exile, identity and the determination to endure' ― Sunday Times

'Vivid and immersive, Pachinko is a rich tribute to a people that history seems intent on erasing' ― Guardian

'The work of a writer in complete control of her characters and her story and with an intense awareness of the importance of her heritage ... Told with such flair and linguistic dexterity that I found myself unable to put it down. Every year, there are a few standout novels that survive long past the hype has died down and the hyperbolic compliments from friends scattered across the dust jacket have been forgotten. Pachinko, a masterpiece of empathy, integrity and familial loyalty, will be one of those novels' -- John Boyne, Irish Times

'We never feel history being spoon-fed to us: it is wholly absorbed into character and story, which is no mean feat for a novel covering almost a century of history' ― Financial Times

'An epic, multi-generational saga' ― Mail on Sunday, Best of 2017

'A great book, a passionate story, a novel of magisterial sweep. It's also fiendishly readable – the real deal. An instant classic, a quick page-turner, and probably the best book of the year' -- Darin Strauss, New York Times-bestselling author of Chang and Eng.

'A long, complex book, it wears its research lightly, and is a page-turner. You can sense the author's love and understanding for all the characters, the good and the flawed' ― Irish Examiner.
