In a future America regimented by class, urban neighborhoods have become walled labor colonies. Members of the labor class—descendants of those brought over from environmentally ruined China—find purpose and identity in their work, providing produce and fish to the elite satellite villages that ring the labor settlement. Fan, a fish-tank diver, leaves her home in the B-Mor settlement (formerly Baltimore) after the man she loves disappears. Her search takes her through the anarchic Open Counties, to a faraway charter village, in a quest that will become legend to those she left behind.

"I've never been a fan of grand hyperbolic declarations in book reviews, but faced with On Such a Full Sea, I have no choice but to ask: Who is a greater novelist than Chang-rae Lee today?"—LATimes
