The Chinese Groove by Kathryn Ma
Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner
Michelle Zauner tells of growing up one of the few Asian American kids at school in Eugene, Oregon; of struggling with her mother's high expectations of her; of a painful adolescence; of months spent in her grandmother's apartment in Seoul, where she and her mother would bond, late at night, over heaping plates of food.
As she grew up, Michelle's Koreanness began to feel ever more distant, even as she found the life she wanted to live. It was her mother's terminal cancer that forced a reckoning and brought her to reclaim the gifts of taste, language, and history her mother had given her.
