THE FOREIGN STUDENT.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Harper Collins, (1998). Hardcover first edition - Highly praised first novel by this award-winning writer, the "story of the burgeoning love affair between a young Korean man scarred by war and the deeply troubled daughter of a wealthy Southern American family. In 1955, a new student arrives at a small college in the Tennessee mountains. Chuck is shy, speaks English haltingly, and on the subject of his earlier life in Korea he will not speak at all. Then he meets Katherine, a beautiful and solitary young woman who, like Chuck, is haunted by some dark episode in her past. Without quite knowing why, these two outsiders are irrevocably drawn together." Winner of the Asian-American Literary Award for Fiction. 325 pp. ISBN: 0-06019149X.
