Publisher Description

In this "mesmerizing" novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Pachinko, the Korean-American daughter of first-generation immigrants strives to join Manhattan's inner circle (USA Today).

Meet Casey Han: a strong-willed, Queens-bred daughter of Korean immigrants immersed in a glamorous Manhattan lifestyle she can't afford. Casey is eager to make it on her own, away from the judgements of her parents' tight-knit community, but she soon finds that her Princeton economics degree isn't enough to rid her of ever-growing credit card debt and a toxic boyfriend. When a chance encounter with an old friend lands her a new opportunity, she's determined to carve a space for herself in a glittering world of privilege, power, and wealth-but at what cost?

Set in a city where millionaires scramble for the free lunches the poor are too proud to accept, this sharp-eyed epic of love, greed, and ambition is a compelling portrait of intergenerational strife, immigrant struggle, and social and economic mobility. Addictively readable, Min Jin Lee's bestselling debut Free Food for Millionaires exposes the intricate layers of a community clinging to its old ways in a city packed with haves and have-nots.

Amandamuffski ,

A beautiful, fascinating book

I was immediately drawn in. The characters are lovely and interesting and the author lets you see them in all their propriety and impropriety. A novel about talent and love and goals and aesthetics. For everyone.

I dont recommend it

Long, meandering and pointless.

Peggy Padelt ,

Exquisite

When it ended, I gasped. I wanted more. A great read. The characters were people that you wanted to meet. I have never felt that before. This deserves a Part II..
