I don't even really know what to say, but I will try to put something about the reading experience into words.

It was alright.  I teared up a few times.  The descriptions of food were verbose and evocative, sometimes excessively so.  I love Maangchi.

This is a story of grief and mourning, of finding your identity and how it changes as you grow, relationships and connections.

Crying in Hmart has got me crying in Hmart. If you are a second gen East Asian immigrant, this book will make you cry. It was so painfully relatable and will make you want to hug your mom, no matter how much you hate her. Book of the year.

I loved this book so much. It so captures the shape death and grief take up in our bodies and brains. There so  much here about culture and language and how it lives are formed in part by us and mostly around us. And it made my mouth water.

A beautiful story of love, loss, and food. Zauner’s prose is so evocative and rich it feels like you’re seeing and tasting and smelling everything she puts on the page. The fact that someone can be such a talented musician and then write such a brilliant memoir is infuriatingly impressive.
