Book Club: Nancy Jooyoun Kim

This week, we’re taking a bit of a break from the relentless election news cycle. Ali chats with Nancy Jooyoun Kim, whose debut novel, The Last Story of Mina Lee, has become a New York Times and USA Today Bestseller since being published in September.

They discuss immigrant experiences in the U.S. and how telling those stories can bring a powerful perspective to a complicated topic. Plus, how her book challenges the assumptions of the American Dream and the types of immigrant stories we often hear.

You can order a copy of The Last Story of Mina Lee from IndieboundBookshop, or your favorite independent bookstore.
