This poignant memoir confronts the grief of seeing a loved one suffer the ravages of cancer and explores the endurance needed to overcome the pain of losing a parent too soon. Michelle Zauner, perhaps best known as the singer and lyricist of the band Japanese Breakfast, offers us an exquisite portrait of her mother and their tumultuous relationship. With both humor and pathos, Zauner uses the shared love of food to add real texture to an intimate view of a bond between mother and daughter. Though filled to the brim with personal details, this deeply moving tale will resonate with nearly anyone.
