**Dubray Staff Recommended Read** A naive young American diplomat is sucked in by the intrigues and machinations of a rogue intelligence officer in 1970s Saigon. Years later, retired after a distinguished diplomatic career, he receives a mysterious package. With hints of Graham Greene and John le Carré, this a powerful study of guilt and redemption, dealing not just with America’s imperial past but also its current immigration crisis. With Spies in Canaan, Park again proves that he is one of the finest writers on this island. Recommended by Brian Blacker, Dubray Grafton St.
This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. Normal People is a story of mutual fascination, friendship and love. It takes us from that first conversation to the years beyond, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but find they can't.
