4) RAS Korea Book Note:
'Olympic Boulevard'
by Philip Onho Lee (Author), John Cha (Translator), 2016, Seoul Selection

Olympic Boulevard is a street in Los Angeles that passes through many neighborhoods including Koreatown, where Phillip Ohno Lee sets his novel.  Olympic Boulevard is the story of the immigrant experience in America as seen through the eyes of Korean immigrants who came to the United States in the early 1960s to establish themselves and to try to achieve the American Dream. The novel tells the story of Myung Tay, who comes to America with his best friend Hongdari to seek a different life. His life has ups and downs as he opens a dry cleaning store on Olympic Boulevard and faces the challenges of fitting into Los Angeles, fitting into the Angeleno Korean community, and making the sacrifices necessary to create a better life for his children.
