Korean American Henry Park is 'surreptitious, B+ student of life, illegal alien, emotional alien, Yellow peril- neo-American, stranger, follower, traitor, spy...' or so says his wife, in the list she writes upon leaving him. Henry is forever uncertain of his place, a perpetual outsider looking at American culture from a distance. And now, a man of two worlds, he is beginning to fear that he has betrayed both and belongs to neither. Chang-Rae Lee's first novel Native Speaker is a raw and lyrical evocation of the immigrant experience and of the question of identity itself.
