Cited by Barack Obama as one of his favorite books of 2019, the epic novel spanning four generations follows a poor Korean family that immigrates and struggles to assimilate in Japan. Opening in 1910, during the Japanese occupation of Korea, and ending in 1989, Lee’s second novel shows how — just like the game for which the book is named — haphazard and random life can be, while providing a glimpse into both Korean and Japanese cultures.
