May – Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month
“For Jane Re, a half-Korean, half-American orphan, the place she’s wanted to escape her whole life is Flushing, Queens. Sardonic yet vulnerable, Re toils — unappreciated — in her strict uncle’s grocery store and politely observes the traditional principle of nunchi. Desperate for a new life, she becomes the au pair for the Mazer-Farleys, two Brooklyn English professors and their adopted Chinese daughter. Inducted into the world of organic food co-ops and 19th-century novels, Re is the recipient of Beth Mazer’s feminist lectures and Ed Farley’s very male attention. But when a family death interrupts Re and Farley’s blossoming affair, she flies off to Seoul, leaving New York behind. Reconnecting with family and struggling to learn the ways of modern-day Korea, Re begins to wonder if Farley is the man for her. Re returns to Queens, where she must find a balance between two cultures and accept who she really is.”
