Crying in H Mart


by Michelle Zauner (Knopf, $27)

Michelle Zauner, lead singer of the band Japanese Breakfast, previously wrote an album that addressed the death of her mother, said Zack Ruskin in the San Francisco Chronicle. But “one medium is not always sufficient when it comes to dealing with loss.” In her new memoir, Zauner recounts returning home to care for her cancer-stricken mother and using Korean cooking to try to mend their relationsh­ip. With its mix of humor and heart, the book “caters to all appetites and doesn’t skimp on the kimchi.”
