Food Mondays: Monica Eng Interviews Chinese-American Novelist Lisa See

WBEZ’s Monica Eng talks to Chinese-American novelist Lisa See, author of bestsellers Shanghai Girls and On Gold Mountain. See’s latest novel, The Island of Sea Women, immerses readers in the lives of a dwindling community on the Korean island of Jeju in which generations of women have supported their families by diving for seafood. Eng and See discuss the dangers of the work, Russian and Japanese influence on the island and the unusual foodways of this disappearing community of female divers.
