Compelling, suspenseful and unforgettable, THE SURRENDERED is a stunning epic of war, redemption and human longing. It is a masterpiece, fit to stand alongside the greatest novels of the past twenty-five years. Chang Rae Lee might be a new name to you but this Korean-American novelist has had much critical acclaim for his previous three novels. The Surrendered, set in and around the Korean War, has at its roots a shocking event that really happened to the author’s father and explores the ongoing human consequences of conflict in harrowing, intimate terms. A page turning, compelling read.
