Michelle Zauner makes music as Japanese Breakfast. In 2016 she released "Psychopomp," in 2017 "Soft Sounds from Another Planet," and in June she will release her third album, "Jubilee." But this year, she did a rather unusual thing for a musician: She released a book. It's called "Crying in H Mart" and it's largely about the death of her mother when Michelle was 25 years old. The book is incredible and immediately shot to #2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list.

For the book she announced a tour, which we were proud to be a part of with Boswell Books. You can watch our conversation in the video above.
