I knew Cecelia Hae-Jin Lee was a cool person because we are in WriteGirl together.
I also knew she had published a cookbook because the LA Times ran a rave review of it.
I didn't know what a good writer she was, though.
I picked up her book, Eating Korean at the library. I flipped it open there in the aisle and started reading.
Not only is it a cookbook, but it also has personal stories from Cecelia's life, some of which are incredibly sweet and touching and sad. I was crying within 2 minutes.
Check it out.
