Growing up in Eugene Oregon with a Caucasian father and a Korean mother, it took the death of her mother from cancer for the author to understand life from her mother’s perspective. And as in many cultures, its food that brings us the most memories. In this case, it was going to the Korean grocery store, H Mart that brings fresh grief as Michelle looks over the shelves of food with which her mother cooked. It’s a moving and honest look at how children’s’ relationship with parents change. The beginning chapter alone makes this one of the outstanding memoirs of 2021.
