Stories for the Immigrant Seoul

Seoul Food peels away the mask that all Korean Americans are expected to wear in public and eloquently exposes what’s underneath. As a Korean American preacher’s kid of a prominent pastor that later “fell away from the faith” and became a stand up comedian, Seoul Food spoke to me in a very real way. I highly recommend it.
Beneath the entertaining and lighthearted tales of her childhood lies the true message of her book, which is the importance of family, the search for identity, and love for humanity. Seoul Food is a must read, especially for 2nd and 3rd generation Asian Americans.
Refreshingly written, wittingly articulated. Seoul Food allows you to taste the bitter sweetness of immigrant life.
