About the Book:
In this widely celebrated story of family, food, grief, and endurance, Michelle Zauner 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; and 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. When Zauner was 25, her mother’s diagnosis of terminal cancer forced a reckoning with her own Korean identity, and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her.
