The power of Minor Feelings is that it demands to be seen, just as it offers the opportunity to see. A poet first, Cathy Park Hong writes with clarity and lilt, performing a personal dissection of race in America through the lens of the Asian experience. With memoir, essay, and cultural criticism, she gives visibility to a group often overlooked or purposely hiding itself, probing the historical context, its harm and effects, and widening the discourse. Courageous, honest, and at times uncomfortable, Minor Feelings could not be more essential or longer overdue. — Melinda
