Jid Lee, the author of TO KILL A TIGER: A Memoir of Korea, spoke with New America Now about her new book and growing up in Korea.
Sandip Roy introduced her this way:
"Sandwiched between World War II and the Vietnam War, the Korean War is, for many Americans, the forgotten war. But for Koreans who grew up in the aftermath of that war, it changed their lives forever. Jid Lee's family lived in genteel poverty in a Korea that was under a ruthless Capitalist dictatorship, as a counterweight to the tyrannical Communist north. Her memoir, To Kill A Tiger, is both about the politics of that time, as well as growing up as a young woman in a Confucian country where her brothers were treated as Gods."
