Re Jane by Patricia Park
Jane Re, a Korean-American, departs from her uncle’s grocery business to serve as an au pair for their adopted daughter, an English professor in Brooklyn. Jane has space and time to think about her future with her fascinating employer when a death in the family forces her to return to Seoul.
Flushing, the Queens, is the place where half-Korean, half-American orphan Jane Re has spent her entire life attempting to get away from. Jane, who is arrogant and weak, toils in her stern uncle’s grocery business unappreciated while courteously according to slave the nunchi custom (a combination of good manners, hierarchy, and obligation).
She is happy to accept the position of au pair for the Mazer-Farleys, two Brooklyn English professors, and their adopted Chinese daughter, as she is desperate for a new start. Jane is introduced to the world of organic food cooperatives and novels set in the nineteenth century. She also receives the very manly attention of Ed Farley and feminist lectures from Beth Mazer. But when a family death ends Jane and Ed’s developing relationship, she takes a flight to Seoul, leaving New York in the rearview mirror.
