Crying in the H Mart by Michelle Zauner

Reviewed by Holly (Library Patron)

This book is the personal journey of its author through an extremely difficult time in her life, her mother’s fight and eventual death due to cancer. As such it was often depressing and reveals a lot of details that are not pleasant to read. Throughout the book the author details many memories that were linked to Korean food. I found this to be overbearing as I was not familiar with most of the dishes and their names occupied a large portion of the text. Even so the story describes a very personal reflection of her mother/daughter evolution through her perspective as the daughter. Overall, it was ok.
