Description
A ruthlessly honest, emotionally charged, and utterly original exploration of Asian American consciousness and the struggle to be human"Brilliant . . . To read this book is to become more human." —Claudia Rankine, author of Citizen Poet and essayist Cathy Park Hong fearlessly and provocatively blends memoir, cultural criticism, and history to expose fresh truths about racialized consciousness in America. Part memoir and part cultural criticism, this collection is vulnerable, humorous, and provocative—and its relentless and riveting pursuit of vital questions around family and friendship, art and politics, identity and individuality, will change the way you think about our world. Binding these essays together is Hong's theory of "minor feelings." As the daughter of Korean immigrants, Cathy Park Hong grew up steeped in shame, suspicion, and melancholy. She would later understand that these "minor feelings" occur when American optimism contradicts your own reality—when you believe the lies you're told about your own racial identity. Minor feelings are not small, they're dissonant—and in their tension Hong finds the key to the questions that haunt her. With sly humor and a poet's searching mind, Hong uses her own story as a portal into a deeper examination of racial consciousness in America today. This intimate and devastating book traces her relationship to the English language, to shame and depression, to poetry and female friendship. A radically honest work of art, Minor Feelings forms a portrait of one Asian American psyche—and of a writer's search to both uncover and speak the truth.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Cathy Park Hong brings a poet's rigor to her narration of these seven essays about the multiplicity of Asian-American experiences. The daughter of Korean immigrants tells stories from her life as well as from American history, examining the particular spaces Asian Americans inhabit in the national understanding of race. Hong's delivery is precise and deliberate. She speaks every word as if it is absolutely essential, thus inviting listeners into the experiences she describes. The seriousness of her tone adds weight to her analysis. Through the complex lenses of art and language, she lays bare how white supremacy and imperialism warp the American psyche. It is as hard to stop listening to these essays as it is to remain unmoved by them. L.S. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
