The review of this Book prepared by ping lim

Elizabeth Kim's "Memoir" has many holes, including events she claims occured in Korea which are inaccurate with Korean traditions, life styles, and events. Too many vague details along with very vivid "memories" which appear timely for Ms. Kim's own benefit.
