Review: Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner

Love was an action, an instinct, a response roused by unplanned moments and small gestures, an inconvenience in someone else’s favor.

It always feels wrong to rate someone's nonfictional account of their own life, but I'm settling on 4 stars. This book is no doubt powerful and a raw reflection of Michelle Zauner's experience with grief, but writing-wise it is a bit repetitive.

I can tell that writing this book was cathartic for Zauner, and I'm glad she had the opportunity to do it. I know her story will touch a lot of readers and it was especially bittersweet to realize that she's a member of Japanese Breakfast and has finally achieved the dreams her mother never got to see her achieve.
