Pressestimmen

"History comes to life in this compelling saga of a courageous and controversial Korean-American woman and her biographer. Dora Kim's story--frank, painful, but inspirational--is an enduring testimony to the power of the human spirit to rise to new challenges. Soo-Young Chin's monumental study is a major contribution..." --James M. Freeman, author of Changing Identities: Vietnamese Americans 1975-1995
