Join acclaimed indie musician and author Michelle Zauner (a.k.a. Japanese Breakfast) for a conversation with Vulture’s E. Alex Jung about her third album, Jubilee, and her new bestselling memoir, Crying in H Mart.

A beautiful meditation on family, grief, and growing up Korean American, Crying in H Mart establishes Zauner as an assured and clear new voice in the American literary landscape — a stirring counterpoint to her hauntingly innovative and celebratory new music as Japanese Breakfast. Hear her discuss the inception of both the memoir and the record — writing about grief while making music about joy, the contrasts between writing books and writing songs, her upcoming projects, and much more.
