Home Was the Land of the Morning Calm by K. Connie Kang

A historical memoir covering the end of the Japanese Occupation of Korea until the present, including the Korean War and its aftermath, through the eyes of a Korean American reporter from a wealthy family. The early years are compelling; historically informative if strongly biased.
