Crying In H Mart


In a lyrical and candid memoir, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner maps her moving journey through grief, familial issues and selfhood in the wake of her mother’s passing. The debut is an expansion of Zauner’s 2018 New Yorker essay of the same name, adapted to chart the singer’s childhood years in the predominately white town of Eugene, Oregon, early gigs she played with her burgeoning band on the East coast and reclamation of her Korean American identity. Just like Zauner’s stage presence, her prose gracefully and powerfully captivates.
