The Queens of K-town: A Novel by Angela Mi Young Hur [in Bloomsbury Review]

Queens of K-TownAs elliptical as Hur’s debut novel is, it’s also incredibly dense, weighed down by the trials and tribulations of a lost generation of Korean American Manhattanites whose teenage lives revolve around the clubs and restaurants of the city’s Koreatown. Cora Moon returns to Manhattan to commit suicide, alternately making plans for death as she recalls her precarious life a decade earlier.
