He does what he's supposed to do, you wind him up, you input the code and I am Pete Buttigieg, designed. Or the sole purpose of administering.

Eve could've been anywhere from late twenties to early forties but certainly very skilled eve works in the house. She works alongside a man named johnny.

Which is is a mac man yes and this is just before the inflation of the revolution has taken off. So it's she's valued at one hundred pounds Johnny was one hundred pounds. Betty the enslaved cook was one hundred pounds so so we know she skilled. She's at the top of the hierarchy of the enslaved community. We have no physical description of eve but we do have one of johnny thanks to a runaway slave newspaper and gotta love. Those johnny was five seven. He had straight hair. Mixed-race gray is and we know that eve had a son named george his valuation suggests. He's in that eight to twelve age. Range east listed individually in the inventory.

"She was comparable to Adam and was created to be a companion for him. God's commands to Adam and Eve were simple be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and subdue. It have dominion over. All the other creatures and don't eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil seems simple enough. Doesn't it yet? We goes straight from the creation of woman at the end of Genesis. Two to the temptation and fall in genesis three. The Servant takes what knows that they aren't to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and then questions it eve response by adding to the command. God said not to eat from the tree. She then adds that they can't even touch it. He picks her interest by telling her that God is keeping them from something. That's good for them. She believes him. She gives in to the temptation and shares with Adam. The serpent presented Eve with a choice. Trust God's command or see for yourself if what God said was true. Go have some fruity sad. It'll be good for you. He said and just like that Eve made a choice. She ate a piece of fruit. And then Lo and behold to make matters worse she shared the fruit with Adam is about the way it is. We don't WanNa be alone in our San. We want to drag others down with us. It makes us feel better about ourselves to have companions and sin but God is a just God. If he tells us there will be consequences. There will be consequences. Maybe not immediately. Maybe a long time later Bible. Tell tell us when Eve died. But we know she was one hundred thirty when she had set we know that and Adam had many more sons and daughters and that atom died when he was nine hundred and thirty years old. It took a while but eve died just has God said she would. Furthermore so did everyone else born after her eve made a bad choice and it forever changed the trajectory of human life. Perhaps you to of made poor decisions. Maybe you're at the point where you wish you could die because don't see a way out of the mess you've made of your life. If so I've got good news for you. God gave her another son. And she named him. Seth with Seth. She received renewed. Hope Seth grew up any had a son in genesis twenty. Six we're told at that time people began to call upon the name of the Lord. Eve may have had one hundred and thirty year old. Pity Party. We don't know but we do know that. God still loved Eve and he gave her another son and she praised God for that son and she taught him about God and she was able to witness a revival of people turning to God despite the sorrow that faced as a result of her sin. She didn't grow better when she bore her first child. She was thankful to have acquired a man from the Lord when her one son killed her other son she bravely continued on with life when Seth was born she proclaimed for God has appointed another seed for me. Instead of able whom Cain killed he could have given up on life. She certainly had plenty of reason to feel that life was hopeless in stead. She pushed forward focusing on her blessings instead of her fears. What about you have you made? Life altering destructive decisions. Are You living in fear? Because of sin that a standing between you and God is easy to give into those fears calling them holy fears. That's not God's intention yes? He wants us to address our sin but once we admit them and bring them to him he wants us to move on and focus not on our failures but on his grace choices have consequences. But whatever choices you've made they're still hope we serve a merciful God who loves you and wants you to be fruitful again. All you have to do is choose. God reject your past live for the future Lord. God we come to you humbled. By the many times we fallen short times. We chose the world over your wisdom.

"Do you think there's something to the idea that audiences would react more favorably to a story about an Asian family written by a white writer is it just bad luck that that happened in DC any contemporary parallels to that today? Oh, golly. Here like dislike do some landmine hopscotch. Hallway? For the record. I love that book. And I know it's a controversial thing to say. I know Asian American writers who hate that book. I don't care. It's a really beautiful book. And I think Pearl buck was actually a very good person. And she cared a lot about biracial Asian orphans who weren't fed and she spent a lot of her life taking care of very poor people that Asian people had discarded. So for me, I see her as an ally. That said I think for young hill Kong to say that it's unfortunate for to have two books come out about Asians. And therefore the reader only had space for one. I can see why he would say that. But I actually think that Moore's more if people like pachinko, they're going to beat another create a book about Koreans. It's a really dangerous thing to walk around feeling like there's only space for one person of. One group. Well, nobody ever says all we can't read the great Gatsby and Ernest Hemingway novel because we only have room for one idiot syncretic weird white guy on the syllabus. Right, right. Nobody ever says that you know, it reminds me of the first line of pachinko, which is you know, there's like collections of great. I lines in novel history. And I think this has to be one. The first line is history has failed us, but no matter and there's an interview with the guardian where you explain what you meant by that, especially as someone who you know, you yourself. You have an undergraduate degree in history. You said I believe history has failed almost everybody who is ordinary in the world. Do you think the same is true of our literary canon is literature failing ordinary people or is literature the remedy for that failure? I think it's both. I think that it has failed us in many ways. But I think that it can remedy us. And maybe that's romantic for people like us to believe, especially if it has failed. It's like to keep taking the same cough medicine. I'm not sure. But I guess I have to believe that literature can repair us because maybe what we need is multiple books. Like when Arbi Jane Eyre, I think about how much it healed me as a girl who believed that she was very plain and on loved, and that's not to like feel sorry for me. I think most people feel plain unloved, it's not a big deal. I walked around with that sense of consciousness, and when I read that book, it was really important to me. But would it have been more lovely in some ways to have had other create Americans and their stories. Sure. So when I was in college, and I read Kim run young, and that's a pen name for somebody who wrote a book called clay walls to historical novel, and she got no attention at all. And now, it's sort of included in the canons. But I think the thing that you, and I are trying to grapple with is how much space. Do we give for the other in the syllabus? Right. Right. Right. Is it one and knowing that there's an infinite multi. Implicity of otherness right and everybody wants to be able to see themselves in a book. Everybody wants to be able to see themselves in the world. And and feel like they're not alone. But that requires a multiplicity of. Well, that is all my questions for you. Is there anything that you wanted to make sure we talked about? Well, I wanted to tell you from the very beginning that I was really so pleased that you wanted to talk about young hill Kong because he is the OG of Korean literature in America. And it just made me really happy. So thank you. Oh, thank you. It makes me really happy. And we're so glad that you're able to come on. And I hope that a lot of people are going to go out and read his weird books after this. They're actually they're really fun. There's a piker usque aspect to. It's it's really fun. And you just learn so much about what it must have been like at that time..

"He he fled Korea to go on to become the first Korean American novelist because he wasn't anti imperialist activist in so he had to leave because he was actually protesting Japanese colonial rule. So even though he wasn't writing in Japanese context per se, he did actually write some of his work in the Japanese language. So so clearly all in all Japanese imperialism had an impact on his life. And hearing you talk and thinking about that makes me wonder if this part of history that many Americans are completely unaware of has had a broader effect on the cultural production of Koreans around the world in. As that might not be so obvious, right? I mean, do you think that's something people need to understand more in order to understand anything about Korean art or culture in the diaspora? Absolutely. And I think that it's really important to think about young he'll exactly as you said because he was a subject of the colony of Japan, and when he wanted to become an educated person when he wanted to understand science because he initially said he wanted to become a scientist before he became a writer, and he wanted to go to Japan because Japan refused to teach science to the people of careers. If you wanted to learn science at all you have to leave your country and go to the colonizer to learn science, and he actually says that he put himself among his enemies in order to become a more knowledgeable person. You know, young he'll Kong wrote that most Americans don't bother to learn anything about Korean culture, which he called. And I quote, a very great tragedy in untold tragedy of horrible ignorance. I have to admit that. I did not know his work before researching him for this podcast. I became interested as I was kind of scrolling through the archive and came across him. And once I looked into him. I was appalled that I didn't know who he was. But he was working teaching alongside some very famous. Contemporaries, Ernest Hemingway, Scott, FitzGerald, Thomas Wolf, why do you think is work is in better known? Well, it's weird. His work is weird. It's this follow regular trajectory as a matter of fact, if you put them into the contemporary classics of today, you would say he's almost an experimental fiction writer. He's kind of a comic writer as well. And comic writers always suffer in literature because they're probably smarter than all of us. But then because comedy is never seen in the same line as tragedy. They're not widely revered. Well. In addition to that reportedly young he'll Kong said, it was unfortunate that his first novel came out in the same year as the good earth, which is of course, much more famous novel. About family in China written by Pearl s buck who is a white person..

"I wish I was reading a normal book. Or I wish I didn't want to do this thing so much. I think right now now that I'm turning fifty in November. I definitely see the sense of you know, I think you're doing the right thing. I think you're meant to be a fiction writer, I think you should keep going even just a couple of years ago as a matter of fact last year when my husband had loss. His job, and we are really scrambling trying to figure out to do with our son's tuition. And I remember thinking, oh, man. I really messed up because if I had stayed a lawyer, I wouldn't have these issues. So I I totally understand if people keep their day jobs. I do man that is very real. You know, I feel like you're really highlighting something that I think so many people have a misconception about in terms of what it means to be successful as a writer. I think a lot of people that are going to be listening to this will be a shocked to hear that you know, that you continue to have your self doubt. And you continue to wonder if you've taken the right path after you've already had, you know, this bestselling widely lauded novel, but it's it's real I feel like that never goes away. Even last year. There was a point when my hardcover sales were not that great. So people were disappointed and. I'm just mentioning this sort of inside baseball kind of information because I think a lot of people have this idea that oh, you know, this is the best seller. It hit the New York Times list, and it's been doing this. But I never hit that list until paperback, and I didn't hit it until the New York Times that it was a top ten kind of thing. And that was nine months after the book came out. So it was a really bizarre Cinderella story of the spoke, but I was still forty eight forty nine at that point. I really thought oh, man. Maybe I could try to sell life insurance or real estate or something. I mean, it was really terrifying. Well, the thing that's amazing about what you're saying. Is that part of the is just the economic reality of it. And also part of it is the sense that you were doing something that people hadn't done before. And of course, the amazing gift you've given the world is that now you've got it. Right. So so many people are going to read this book. And then and just think, you know, this is perfect. It's so beautifully wrought. And she. She's so successful. But I wanna go back to something you said earlier, which is that. Thank you, by the way. Thank you. Oh, I mean, I I really love your book. I could I could I could go on something you said earlier was that you feel that in order to truly understand Korean culture. There has to be an understanding of the intersection between Japan and Korea, historically and the legacy of colonialism. And I'm thinking about young he'll Kong, you know?.

"Because we know that's not the way it should be. And I think even going to law school, it really taught me that even though there's a lot of inequities in this country from historically it's well as in present day, we know that we can try to be dressed some of these things and the wheels of Justice churn incredibly slowly, but we have to keep pushing the wheel, and I think that level of belief that the wheel can progress is really very American. I'm not surprised at an American took on the Korean Japanese history. As opposed to people who are much more resigned to the fact that you know, life is shaky and it's gonna station. So you did live in Tokyo for four or five years. Did you experience racism during your time in Japan, and that also influence the lens that you brought to the book? I did experience a lot of racism against me because I'm created always took me by surprise. Because I think there's a kind of naive belief that when you're educated, and you have some means that you're sheltered from discrimination. But very often people would refer to the fact that I had Korean blood, and because I had Korean blood that made me a suspicious person. And this happened so often that it really took me by surprise because sometimes people would save these things without thinking of me, let's say like they would be talking about other Koreans or Chinese people. And I was thinking while you're my friend. How can you say these things and you realize like, that's what you have to take on when you're in a world in which the norms are that there are good, Asians and their bodies, and in Japan, the wrong, Asians, are people from outside of Japan. So as you know. During this episode. We've been lucky enough to listen to the archival interview between studs terkel and young he'll Kong, and he wrote the first Korean American novel. That's right and your novel as I've read, and you can correct me if I'm wrong is the first written in English that discusses the experiences in the history of Korean people living in Japan. Now, I know that questions of being the first and being the only as a really complicated thing. And in some ways it can be special. But it can also be burdensome it can also be kind of depressing. I always think it's sort of depressing to be the first person to do anything in the twenty first century. But what are your thoughts on that? You know, the idea of firsts and first nece to do those things matter to you or not so much. I think even talking to my therapist. So I. I think the processing is the right adjective. I found it really discouraging because the whole time. I kinda thought the reason why no one has done, and it's because nobody wants it. So what makes you think that you're so special like I had these voices in my head like why are you bothering doing this? And I did watch other people become more successful doing other things. And I thought, wow, they have security they have health insurance. They have money in the Bank. They have an office. And there were definitely parts of my career that I felt this kind of longing to be normal..

You were jeopardy clue. I was the question was Korean-born min Jin Lee wrote a twenty seventeen book with this Japanese pinball game as its title. Of course, the answer is pachinko, but you have to say what is pachinko right answering the form of a question. And I believe the person got it. Right, right. She did Burkey got it. Right. How bad mouth bad? Well. Welcome to bughouse. Wear. It is great to have you here. Thank you for having me. It's really an honor to be here. So one thing many of our listeners might not be familiar with is the experience of Korean people in Japan people like the characters in your book and the layers of social constraint and straight up racism that they experience, obviously, this is a huge issue. But could you talk briefly about that social context and the experiences of Zion Ichi in Japan today? Oh, sure. Well, essentially, what's really important to know is Japan colonized Korea between nineteen ten to nineteen Forty-five at ended with the end of the World War Two because Japan was an ally of the axis powers and then during this era, a lot of Koreans ended up going to Japan for economic reasons as well as some of them were forced to come. So you have this incredibly humongous population at the height. I believe it's about two million people and that eventually many of them repatriated going back to Korea which was by the time eighteen forty five divided into two. There's an increase. Really humongous of people who ended up staying in Japan. Because if you wanted to go back to Korea, either south or north you are limited in what you could take back and also usually all their homes were gone, their families were gone, and there's a lot of cholera and illness, so many than decided to stay, but in deciding to stay it was a very difficult law, and even today the Koreans Japan suffer a lot of social discrimination as well as legal discrimination. Now, you did not grow up in Japan. You're born in Seoul, and you grew up in queens, but you did live in Japan for a period as an adult. So the story in the novel is in some ways quite different from your story. But you said in one interview that the topic became like, a compulsion for you. Why is this something you wanted to write about I think that the reason why felt like a compulsion to me is because when I heard about the plight of cranes in Japan when I was eighteen years old, and I was in college. I didn't realize that people could be so hated based upon their immutable care. Actress deke's and that sounds really naive. But it's not that naive. Think about the fact that queens is a place even today, which has the highest number and variety of immigrants Nin tire nation. So it's really normal to be different when you're in queens. So I had a really good life in queens. And when I heard about the cranes in Japan, I kind of freaked out because I couldn't believe how mean people were. So I felt like I had to figure it out. And I think if you really want to understand Koreans in the world, you can't not understand the intersection of Japan and Korean history. So I spent some time thinking about writing a book, and I had no idea that it would take almost three decades of my life. So in a way, it sounds like even though this book is situated both between Japan and Korea. It sounds like being from queens, really shaped the point of view that you brought as a writer. Oh, absolutely. And also brought the kind of rage. It brought a kind of anger and a sense of indignity. Nation about the fact that people should not be treated this way in the same way. Like, if you think about how angry we are about the way women are treated or people of color in this country that comes from us a space of entitlement..

And I love listening to them. So it pains me to interrupt except. It's for a really good reason. Which is tell you that it's almost time to bring on Mingeon Lee. So recently, I read a phenomenal novel that I hope many of you may also have read, and if you haven't you really should it's called pachinko, and it was written by Mingeon Lee. Our guests for today. It was one of the New York Times book reviews. Ten best books of two thousand seventeen and it was a finalist for the national book award in my opinion. It is deserving of those accolades and more. The book follows the experience of a Korean family over multiple generations. It begins in Korea. But the majority of the novel takes place in Japan in a few minutes. We're going to have a conversation with Mingeon Lii, which I'm very much looking forward to. But I I want to share but of history that I'm definitely still learning about after reading pachinko history, that's very much illustrated in the novel just a heads up the discuss. Of sexual assault that I mentioned at the beginning of this episode is coming up shortly from nineteen ten and nineteen Forty-five Korea was under Japanese colonial rule. This had intense political, social and cultural consequences. For the first ten years of that occupation Japan ruled via strict military intervention in nineteen thirty nine the Japanese government. Pushed many Koreans to change their surnames to Japanese names, if they chose not to they weren't able to participate in anything that required, government documentation. If you didn't have a Japanese name, you couldn't go to school get a job or get a ration card to receive food schools and universities didn't allow people to speak Korean and over two hundred thousand Korean historical documents were burned these kinds of tactics were an intentional effort to straight up a race Korean culture during the World War. Two years Koreans living under Japanese imperialism were forced to fight on the front lines forced to work in factories and many women and girls referred to by the euphemism term comfort women were forced into sexual slavery at the hands of Japanese soldiers. Here's one of them. I'm Johnson talking to NPR about her experience of being kidnapped and enslaved at age thirteen. Cunanan go yet. You'll be what I remember that. I was forcibly taken out of Korea and taken to China. More than you could tap Munia. Go. What can I say, they did all the things they wanted to do according to their desires it was during these colonial years that young hill Kong actually, left Korea because he was a vocal anti imperialist activist. He went to Canada, and then the United States, but many other Koreans went to Japan it self during the wartime years, the Japanese government forced round three quarters of a million Koreans to work in Japan, and my nineteen forty five when the war ended there were about two million Korean people living in Japan altogether. They became known as I in Ichi, which means residing in Japan, a term that implies they'd be there temporarily, but many Koreans have stayed in Japan for generations in today. There about seven hundred thousand Koreans living in Japan. Let's jump to our interview with Mingeon Lee. And we'll learn more about their experiences and her novel. Men gin Lee is the celebrated author of two novels her first novel free food for millionaires was a bestseller in her more recent novel pachinko, which came out in two thousand seventeen was a bestseller as well and a finalist for the national book award and was also named by the New York Times is one of the top ten books of two thousand seventeen she's received many prestigious awards, including.

"We hear voices from history, and we talked to some thinkers from the world today. Who have something valuable to add to the conversation? I'm your host easygoing. I'm a writer sociologist question asker space, invader stationary enthusiasts. And you'll hear me chiming in the conversations from the past with a few thoughts from the present. So let's get into it this season. So far we've heard from some incredible authors. In this episode is no different today. We're going to hear from one thousand nine hundred sixty six conversation with the writer young hill Kong who wrote the first ever Korean American novel, the grass roof, which he discusses with studs in this interview later on I'm going to talk to min Jin Lee. She is the author of two novels free food for millionaires and more recently pachinko like Kangxi is a Korean American author and her epic novel pachinko deals with the same Japanese imperialism in Korea that so impacted Kong's own life, which we're gonna talk about later. I'm excited to tell you a little bit more about young hill Kong. But first, let's hear him in his own voice here he is reading from his novel. And it's also a nice little intro to who. He was. Yes. The life that I have lived with all the joys and Soro's is an interesting life and shoot the be the author of the story. Because this is the one life. I know the best I have always believed in heroes, and I have thirsted to study. The lives of all great men, such as Confucius cries Shakespeare, Keats Libor, and many others in numerous other names that enrapture in my soul, and stirring, my heart. Fascinating my mind, making my blood jump and in my news fly, but I know my own story better than theirs. I'm not writing this to make anybody educated or to put down any Babatunde or to spread any do sort of Gosper. My one aim is to tell you the life. The human story of one man made up with a stuff called love hitched with Smilers, and tears or I can do is to tell this. Sincerely, and frankly for life, which includes such things as to travel, very often in dreams in the castles of Spain. And they gain to worry where the morning breakfast will come from has always seemed to me bigger than anything has even bigger than thoughts extending from the devil fight in the pundit Monia mobiles brings to the stars and clouds in the green void now that there is a writer if I do say so myself young Okon was born in eighteen ninety eight he left Korea in nineteen twenty one under the conditions of Japanese imperialism, which we're gonna talk a lot about in a little bit. And he settled in the United States where he attended Boston University and Harvard he came to the US just before the immigration exclusion act of nineteen twenty four which essentially banned Asian immigrants from coming to the country, and he married. An American student who he met at BU in nineteen twenty nine young he'll Kong wrote as already mentioned the grass roof, which is an autobiographical novel about a young man coming of age in a village in Korea under Japanese rule who ultimately decides to move to the US sounds familiar, and he also wrote east goes west the making of an oriental Yankee, the also autobiographical story of a Korean man whose immigrated to the US and provides astute social commentary and critique of race in American society, studs and young hill Kong seem to really like each other. And they have a great report and chemistry and their conversation. So as a result, this is a great interview. And I think it gives us a sense of who Kong was as a writer. So I'm just gonna let him in studs rock for awhile. And then we'll be back to talk some history and introduce our terrific guests who has min-jin Lee author of the critically acclaimed novels free food for millionaires and pachinko, but first let's travel back to the year.
