Hannam Chain or Market World?

My Halmuni liked to cook, so she went to the market more often than just on the weekends. She would take me, so I could learn where to find the ingredients for family recipes, because they weren’t sold at American stores.

Event Review: Roxane Gay Reading of “Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body”

Roxane Gay is one of the most important authors alive today. She is the brilliant, unapologetic author of “Bad Feminist,” “An Untamed State,” and “Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body,” books that cover themes like gender, race, fatness, sexuality, pop culture, and politics. This past Monday, she paid a visit to the Hammer Museum to read excerpts from her latest book, “Hunger,” despite revealing during the reading that she personally hates being read to.
