Eat a Peach: A Memoir

Eat a Peach: A Memoir

Food memoir is one of my favorite nonfiction subgenres, and I loved this inside look at the Momofuku empire and Chang’s life story. Raised by his Korean immigrant parents in Virginia, Chang struggled with loneliness and isolation. When he couldn’t find a job after graduating college, he convinced his father to loan him restaurant start-up money.

With candor and humility, he shares both his struggles and successes in this intimate and unconventional memoir.
