Suzy Park is a twenty-nine-year-old Korean American interpreter for the New York City court system who makes a startling and ominous discovery about her family history that will send her on a chilling quest. Five years prior, her parents--hardworking greengrocers who forfeited personal happiness for their children''s gain--were brutally murdered in an apparent robbery of their store. But the glint of a new lead entices Suzy into the dangerous Korean underworld, and ultimately reveals the mystery of her parents'' homicide.
From the Publisher:
Working as a interpreter for the New York City court system, Korean-American Suzy Park makes a startling discovery that casts doubt on the facts surrounding her greengrocer parents' murders five years earlier. A first novel. Reader's Guide available. Reprint.
A young Korean-American woman named Suzy Park, who works as an interpreter in New York City's court system, discovers a shocking truth about her own family in the course of her work.


Kirkus Reviews
"A sleek, nearly hypnotic glimpse into the world of a Korean family ruptured in translation to America." 10/01/2002

New York Times Book Review
"The real mystery begging to be settled in THE INTERPRETER is Suzy herself--her desires, losses, needs....There's a scene late in the novel when Suzy interprets in an I.N.S. case for a Korean woman who's the same age her mother would be had she lived....Here Kim earns the small, beautiful shiver of sadness that should occur far more frequently in this novel...." - Katherine Dieckmann 01/26/2003
