japanese breakfastMichelle Zauner has an incredibly rich creative life. She makes music as Japanese Breakfast with her collaborator Craig Hendrix, she directs music videos for people like Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst and she's currently writing a 90-thousand-word book based on a New Yorker essay she wrote called Crying in H Mart. She joins host Talia Schlanger for a discussion about how the loss of her mom informed her own sense of identity as well as her music. Plus, we’ll hear music from the Japanese Breakfast catalog. On the next World Cafe.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 /  streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org  / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
