This was one of the saddest books I’ve ever read! I enjoyed reading about Zauner’s struggle with her Asian-American identity and the various dynamics within her family. It made me think a lot about my own family and how we process grief, and takeaways that I can apply. While it was hard to read, I’m glad that this story was written.

3.5 stars to this one, not a bad start for the year. Michelle writes well, the book was easy to read, even though it was a lot more graphic than I expected. It made me feel for her, and I loved how she incorporated food descriptions into the story (however, they felt a little bit too much by the end?).
I also really loved reading about the mother-daughter relationship and dynamic, with all the ups and downs.

Memoir is easily becoming one of my favorite genres.

Tender memoir of a mother-daughter relationship, heavily influenced by Korean culture.
