In this exquisite story of family, food, grief, and endurance, Michelle Zauner proves herself far more than a dazzling singer, songwriter, and guitarist. With humor and heart, she tells of growing up one of the few Asian American kids at her school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother’s particular, high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of treasured months spent in her grandmother’s tiny apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food.

Michelle Zauner, founder of the indie rock/dream pop band Japanese Breakfast, writes about her Korean heritage, the loss of her mother to cancer, and how she cultivated her identity in the face of so much loss.
She takes us down the aisles of H Mart and gives mouth-watering descriptions of the Korean meals that her mother would prepare for her, even intricately curating her dining experience.
