Korean American author and musician Michelle Zauner, perhaps best known for her indie-rock band Japanese Breakfast, captivated readers with her 2018 New Yorker essay about mourning her mother’s death through Korean food. Her memoir of the same name expands her exploration of grief, memory, the mother-daughter relationship and her connection to her Korean identity with emotional precision and depth, sharing stories of growing up in the very white city of Eugene, Ore., traveling to Seoul, and coming to terms with her mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis.
