Japanese Breakfast frontwoman Michelle Zauner discusses her new memoir, Crying in H Mart. In the book, she beautifully illustrates how she has dealt with the grief of losing her mother by cooking Korean food, and how her understanding of her mother has evolved since her death. She also discusses the complicated nature of being mixed race, and how she's found a sense of belonging through her artistic practices.
“Part of being mixed race and losing your parent that sort of connects you to that part of your culture, you just start to question, is this even an inherent part of my identity?” Zauner says. “I think that now I just really have to work to preserve that part of myself instead of it just being innately a part of me because of my mom’s existence.”
