Twenty-one titles for fans of HBO’s "Succession"

At B&N Reads Tara Sonin tagged twenty-one books for fans of HBO’s Succession, including:
Pachinko, by Min Jin Lee

A teenage girl falling in love is a simple story. A girl in 1900’s Japan falling for a married man, and then getting pregnant…isn’t simple at all. The saga in Pachinko is tragic and hopeful; Sunja decides to marry a traveling minister, turning away from what her family believes is honorable and the powerful influence of her son’s father. Her choice has an impact on generations to come, turning a not-so-simple story into a beloved, award-winning epic.

Pachinko is among six books Jia Tolentino recommends.
