Our next book will be “Minor Feelings, An Asian American Reckoning,” by Cathy Park Hong. What happens when an immigrant believes the lies they’re told about their own racial identity? The daughter of Korean immigrants, Cathy Park Hong grew up in America steeped in shame, suspicion, and melancholy. She would later understand that these minor feelings occur when American optimism contradicts your own reality. With sly humor and a poet’s searching mind, Hong uses her own story as a portal into a deeper examination of racial consciousness. 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.
