The Last Story of Mina Lee: A Novel by Nancy Jooyoun Kim: Conversation Starters
The Last Story of Mina Lee by Nancy Jooyoun Kim is a poignant narrative about a mother and a daughter whose love for each other is hindered by history, language, poverty, and unspoken sadness. Margot is an American-born Korean who was raised by an undocumented immigrant. The story opens with Margot on her way to visit her mother after a year of almost having no contact with each other. When she finally makes it home, she finds her rotting corpse in their apartment. What follows is a series of reminiscing and investigation of the woman Margot thought she knew.
The novel switches from Margot’s perspective to Mina’s, artfully intertwining stories of Mina’s past and Margot’s unraveling of the mother she loved but couldn’t understand. Mina was an orphan of war, a survivor of many losses, and a woman with many secrets that she couldn’t share with Margot. One of those secrets is the cause of her untimely death.
The Last Story of Mina Lee is a Reese’s Book Club Pick, with Reese Witherspoon commenting that she “loved this book so much.” It received an average of 3.58 ratings on Goodreads based on 1,326 reviews and 10,977 ratings and several praises from notable publications like the Los Angeles Times.
