Exchange Exemplar: a child of 'model minority' writes of 'Minor Feelings'

Being told often that you are a member of a minority group in America can have an effect over time, something of a grinding-down of the soul.

Cathy Park Hong calls those "minor feelings," something she's experienced a lot growing up as an Asian American.

She lets the stuff on the inside out in a book of essays, Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning. There's some history, there's some cultural criticism, there's anger, and there's humor, too.

Cathy Park Hong joined us in 2020, and we revisit the interview here.
