Marginalia: Chang-rae Lee On 'My Year Abroad'
Chang-rae Lee is known for exploring issues of culture and identity. His new novel, My Year Abroad, introduces readers to a young American who is taken on a year-long global adventure by a Chinese-American businessman.
This book takes a deep dive into the American dream and consumption, and more granular, at the transition from average college student to domestic adulthood.
I recently spoke with Lee about the book and its memorable characters. Here’s our conversation.
My Year Abroad by Chang-rae Lee was published by Riverhead Books.
