really liked it

Ever since I learned Korean, I have been fascinated with the culture.

This is a fictional story of Ginger, a 27 year old Korean-American woman, whose mother is determined to set her up to marry a good Korean doctor. Ginger has no desire to marry, and even less desire to continue with the traditional Korean culture rules. One man that her mother sets her up with turns out to be engaged - and not to a Korean woman. Ginger's mom tries to get her to break up the engagement!

The book isn't only about the dates Ginger's mom sets her up with. Hwang writes about Ginger's struggles with her job and the racism she encounters.
