'A story that is both beautiful and heartbreaking; it is as raw as it is precious. I bawled my eyes out, but I also loved it and I hope you do too.' Dua Lipa 'Incredible . . . It absolutely wrecked me . . . So, so emotional' Natalie Portman 'Crying In H Mart destroyed me . . . Its fantastic.' Olivia Rodrigo From the indie rockstar Japanese Breakfast, an unflinching, deeply moving memoir about growing up mixed-race, Korean food, losing her Korean mother, and forging her own identity. 'As good as everyone says it is and, yes, it will have you in tears. An essential read for anybody who has lost a loved one, as well as those who haven't' Marie Claire In this story of family and food, grief and joy, Michelle Zauner proves herself far more than a dazzling singer, songwriter, and guitarist. With humour and heart, she tells of growing up the only Asian-American kid at her school; of struggling with her mothers expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of treasured months spent in her grandmothers tiny apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food. As she grew up, her Koreanness began to feel ever more distant, even as she found the life she wanted to live. It was her mothers diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer, when Michelle was twenty-five, that forced a reckoning with her identity and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her. Vivacious and honest, Michelle Zauners voice is as alive on the page as it is onstage. Rich with intimate anecdotes, Crying in H Mart is a book to cherish, share, and reread. What readers are saying about Crying in H Mart: 'I recommend this for anyone who likes memoirs, food, and whos ever felt lonely.' (Five Stars) 'I was captivated by this coming-of-age story which resonated with mine and other friends' stories.' (Five Stars) 'A must for people looking to be hooked in memories that span between joy, sadness and love.' (Five Stars) *Crying in H Mart was a #1 New York Times bestseller w/c 17.04.2023
