The Surrendered // Chang-rae Lee.

June Han has been running all her life with her tenacious fervor. Hector Brennan has been droning all his life with immortal lackluster. And between stands Sylvie Tanner the fount of hope for love: love that accepts and embraces. In his ambitious fourth novel, Lee meticulously dovetails three histories into painful paint streaks of despair and death, splattered on the canvas of life, to exhibit the vitality of endurance. Despite our grandest expectations and greatest fears, Lee reminds us that life demands endurance. But endurance is not a pretty picture.
