Author Janice Y K Lee comes to Denver's 16th Street 'Tattered Cover' this coming Monday 25th January at 7:00 pm. For further details, please call: 1 303 436 1070

KGNU's Claudia Cragg speaks here with Janice Y.K. Lee "whose New York Times bestselling debut was The Piano Teacher (called “immensely satisfying” by People, “intensely readable” by O, The Oprah Magazine, and “a rare and exquisite story” by Elizabeth Gilbert.)"

"Now, in her long-awaited new novel, 'The Expatriates', Lee explores with devastating poignancy the emotions, identities, and relationships of three very different American women living in the same small expat community in Hong Kong."

Mercy, a young Korean American and recent Columbia graduate, is adrift, undone by a terrible incident in her recent past. Hilary, a wealthy housewife, is haunted by her struggle to have a child, something she believes could save her foundering marriage. Meanwhile, Margaret, once a happily married mother of three, questions her maternal identity in the wake of a shattering loss. As each woman struggles with her own demons, their lives collide in ways that have irreversible consequences for them all. Atmospheric, moving, and utterly compelling.
