Min Jin Lee, author of the acclaimed debut novel, FREE FOOD FOR MILLIONAIRES (Grand Central Publishing, May 22), reads from and discusses the book with David Henry Hwang, the Tony-award winning playwright of M. BUTTERFLY and the OBIE-award winner for GOLDEN CHILD. FREE.

From the New York Times Book Review (Liesl Schillinger, July 1):

"It would be remarkable if she had simply written a long novel that was as easy to devour as a 19th-century romance — packed with tales of flouted parental expectations, fluctuating female friendships and rivalries, ephemeral (and longer-lasting) romantic hopes and losses, and high-stakes career gambles. But Lee intensifies her drama by setting it against an unfamiliar backdrop: the tightly knit social world of Korean immigrants, whose children strive to blend into their American foreground without clashing with their distinctive background. It’s a feat of coordination and contrast that could kill a chameleon, but Lee pulls it off with conviction."
