Crying in H Mart
Goodreads Choice Awards 2021: Winner, Memoir & Autobiography
The New York Times bestseller from the Grammy-nominated 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, reclaiming the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her.
'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
‘Possibly the best book I’ve read all year... I will be buying copies for friends and family this Christmas.’ Rukmini Iyer in the Guardian ‘Best Food Books of 2021’
‘Wonderful... The writing about Korean food is gorgeous... but as a brilliant kimchi-related metaphor shows, Zauner’s deepest concern is the ferment, and delicacy, of complicated lives.’ Victoria Segal, Sunday Times, ‘My favourite read of the year’
In this exquisite story of family, food, grief, and endurance, 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 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. As she grew up, moving to the east coast for college, finding work in the restaurant industry, performing gigs with her fledgling band – and meeting the man who would become her husband – her Koreanness began to feel ever more distant, even as she found the life she wanted to live. It was her mother’s 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, lyrical and honest, Michelle Zauner’s voice is as radiantly alive on the page as it is onstage. Rich with intimate anecdotes that will resonate widely, Crying in H Mart is a book to cherish, share, and reread.

Så bra att kunna lyssna på en bra bok när jag sitter i bilen eller på flyget eller tåget.
Lätt att läsa och bra att man kan ställa in bakgrundsfärg och teckenstorlek.
Snabb och trevlig kundtjänst, bra utbud och snyggt användargränssnitt. Ständig utveckling av appen.
I didn’t know it was an autobiography when I started the book. It was a touching subject and spotlights the thoughts and feelings of many biracial ppl and their relationship and connection to their culture, or lack of.
