IN THE REVIEW

Like No One They’d Ever Seen

East Goes West

by Younghill Kang, with a foreword by Alexander Chee and afterword by Sunyoung Lee
What if the finest, funniest, craziest, sanest, most cheerfully depressing Korean-American novel was also one of the first? Practically everything about Younghill Kang’s brash modernist comic novel East Goes West, published by Scribner’s in 1937, still feels electric.
