Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
This book tells a gripping story of several generations of a Korean family, starting in 1883. It is a great read and covers many aspects of Korean and Japanese history and culture, and issues associated with emigration / immigration. Apple have bought the rights for a tv version, but it will be hard to be as good as the book.
The novel was published in 2017, and was on display in every bookshop I visited on my trip to South Korea in early 2018.
