An unforgettable memoir weaving the authorís childhood with five generations of Korean history Against the backdrop of modern Koreaís violent and tumultuous history, To Kill A Tigeris a searing portrait of a woman and a society in the midst of violent change. Drawing on Korean legend and myth, as well as an Asian womanís unique perspective on the United States, Lee weaves her compelling personal narrative with a collective and accessible history of modern Korea, from Japanese colonialism to war-era comfort women, from the genocide of the Korean War to the government persecution and silence of Cold War-era pogroms. The ritual of storytelling, which she shares with the women of her family, serves as a window into a five-generation family saga, and it is through storytelling that Lee comes to appreciate the sacrifices of her ancestors and her own now American place in her family and society. In To Kill A TigerLee provides a revelatory look at war and modernization in her native country, a story of personal growth, and a tribute to the culture that formed her.
