About this title

Synopsis:

Nora Okja Keller burst onto the literary scene in 1997 with the publication of her first novel, Comfort Woman. Chosen by the Los Angeles Times as one of the best books of the year, Comfort Woman was hailed by Michiko Kakutani of the New York Times as "a lyrical and haunting novel that combines the familial intimacy of Louise Erdrich's early novels with the fierce historical magic of Toni Morrison's Beloved."

With her latest beautifully imagined and unflinchingly honest novel, Keller continues to explore the complex relationship between America and Korea. Set in the aftermath of the Korean War, Fox Girl is the story of its forgotten victims, the abandoned children of American GIs who live in a world where life is about survival. The "fox girl" is Hyung Jin, who is disowned by her parents and whose life revolves around her best friend, Sookie, a teenage prostitute kept by an American soldier, and Lobetto, a lost boy who makes a living running errands and pimping for neighborhood girls. Nora Keller brings this world of young people-at the edge of society who dream of coming to America-to life in a way that is both horrifying and deeply moving.

Fox Girl is at once a rare portrait of the long-term consequences of a neglected aspect of war and a moving story of the fierce love between a mother and her daughter that will ultimately redeem Hyung Jin's life in America.

About the Author:

Nora Okja Keller lives in Hawaii with her husband and two daughters. She received the Pushcart Prize in 1995 for "Mother Tongue," a piece from her first novel, Comfort Woman, winner of a 1998 American Book Award.
