Thankfully, Next Lee Will Be Set Outside Suburbia

Chang-rae Lee, currently in Seoul to promote Aloft and A Gesture Life, says that his next novel will be about the “lingering tragedy” resulting from the Korean war.

“It will be about a refugee girl raised in America after the war, a soldier and an aid worker during the war,” Lee said during a media meeting held yesterday at the Press Center in central Seoul. He said the book will be published in about two years.

Looking forward to it.
