Your House Will Pay Read ✓ 102 Shooting is bringing up painful memories Plus his cousin Ray is just released from prison and needs to reconnect with their family after so many years away While Shawn is trying his best to keep his demons at bay he’s not sure Ray can do the sameWhen another shocking crime hits LA the Parks and the Matthewses collide in ways they never could have expected After decades of loss violence and injustice tensions come to a head and force a reckoning that could clear the air or lead to violenc. This is an ambitious book It s trying to tell a very specific story tied deeply to a particular place and time exploring the repercussions of an often forgotten set of racial tension between Black and Korean people in Los Angeles As Cha notes the specifics are often lost in the larger story of Rodney King and the Watts riots While it s very specific it will also feel relevant to anyone living in the US right now a time of protests and memorials and repeated unspeakable lossesWe see this story through two sets of eyes Shawn grew up in the worst of it and got caught up in gangs and violence but he s found his way through and settled in to a kind of stable adulthood supporting his cousin s family while he s in prison Shawn s sister Ava was gunned down as a teenager before there was a Black Lives Matter movement and he still feels the loss Grace is the dutiful daughter of Korean immigrants working in her parents pharmacy moving aimlessly through her late 20 s reading terrible stories in the news and feeling bad but detached Shawn and Grace are connected without realizing it but as the story unfolds they will find old secrets coming back to lightI think Cha builds a really interesting and current story with lots of layers to peel through But I think she paints herself into a corner somewhat I was dissatisfied with the ending even though I understand the logic behind it It feels like the present where we still don t know where things go from here but it felt off to me I think Grace gets a little too much of this story too She is called out for her often self centered approach to the events of the book than once but she also gets to have eual billing in the narrative and I can t help but think that giving her less of it would make the book a little balanced This isn t an escapist book it feels an awful lot like reading the news but I think Cha has captured a lot of the anxiety and concern of this moment incredibly well definitely the strongest element of the book

Your House Will Pay Read ✓ 102 A powerful and taut novel about racial tensions in LA following two families one Korean American one African American grappling with the effects of a decades old crimeIn the wake of the police shooting of a black teenager Los Angeles is as tense as it’s been since the unrest of the early 1990s Protests and vigils are being staged all over the city It’s in this dangerous tinderbox that two families must finally confront their pastsGrace Park lives a sheltered existence living at home wit. NOW AVAILABLEwhen i heard about this book the first thing i thought after what a fantastic title that is was that it would be a readalike for All Involved which was a sharp and gritty piece of crime fiction in which gang affiliated characters used the racial tensions and violence of the la riots in the aftermath of the rodney king verdict as an excuse to seek revenge for longstanding grudges leading to a back and forth killing spree leaving many intended targets dead along with unaffiliated innocents caught in the crossfiresbut i was wrong wrong wrong and while its central dramatic conflict occurs as a tangential result of the racially charged atmosphere in los angeles following king s beating this is a different take altogether far less violent and nihilistic and closer in tone to a book like Ask Again Yes it s a tragic but redemptive family drama with such strong current day relevance and moral complexity that discerning book clubs should take note cha s novel is based on a real life incident the death of fifteen year old african american latasha harlins here ava matthews who was shot in the back of the head by a korean convenience store owner named soon ja du here yvonne parkjung ja han in 1991 two weeks after the video of rodney king s beating surfaced du had accused latasha of shoplifting a bottle of orange juice and their verbal altercation escalated into the physical before the fifty one year old woman grabbed a gun and fired killing the girl when police arrived on the scene they discovered that latasha had the money for the juice in her hand du was convicted of voluntary manslaughter but served no jail time an outcome contributing to the unrest that culminated in the riots Your House Will Pay is set in the summer of 2019 after yet another police shooting of an unarmed black teenage boy provokes community outrage the city is a simmering powder keg of tension an atmosphere of violence just about to erupt as cries for justice and the unhealed wounds of those still feeling betrayed by the ava matthews verdict rise up during a vigil attended by an influx of the sneering red hat wearing western boys drawn to the scene by social media doing what it does best riling people up and adding fuel to the fire while the presumably responsible professional media is no better and tensions are highthis increasingly fraught atmosphere is the backdrop for a tragedy of shakespearian proportions as the members of the two families most directly connected to ava matthews death find their fates knotted together once in the wake of another violent crime the story is shared between ava s brother shawn who was with ava at the time of the shooting and yvonne s sheltered daughter grace who wasn t even born when the incident occurred and knew nothing about it until now these two characters are the anchor points around whom swirl the events of the past and present and the wide ranging emotions and actions of their families and friends building a richly drawn and compelling story of the weight of secrets shame and guilt and the effects of a legacy of violence and injustice on families and communities in a country approaching its boiling point it s a helluva book and cha resists applying the disingenuous balm of easy answers onto a conflict too deeply layered with scars and emotional pain to resolve smoothly but she offers the possibility of healing of recovering from the loss and rage and resisting the expectations of a world where private tragedies become public spectacle sensitive and astute it s a book we need right now and it s a book that lingers offering plenty to think about He remembered those six days of violence fire and havoc wherever he looked stumbling bodies and stunned bleeding faces He watched his city go up in flames and under the sadness and rage the exhilaration of rampage he recognized the sparkle of hope Rebirth that was the promise of destruction The olive branch the rainbow the good men spared to rebuild the earthBut where was the new city And who were the good menLos Angeles this was supposed to be it The end of the frontier land of sunshine promised land Last stop for the immigrant the refugee the fugitive the pioneer It was Shawn s home where his mother and sister had lived and died But he had left and so had most of the people he knew Chased out priced out native children living in exile And he saw the fear and rancor here in the ones who d stayed This city of good feeling of tolerance and progress and loving thy neighbor was also a city that shunned and starved and killed its own No wonder was it that it huffed and heaved ready to blow Because the city was human and humans could only take so muchcome to my blog
