A book recommendation

I've started a new book that is really, really well written.  The Surrendered, by Chang-Rae Lee, is a true character study, jumping between the Korean War and then into more modern times.  From what I have seen so far, it dives very deep into the ravages of war and how they last over a long period of time.

Lee is a very fine writer whom I have read a number of times before (Native Speaker, Aloft, A Gesture Life).  This latest book seems like it might be his best.
