A Book in Review: My Korean Deli

My Korean Deli By: Ben Ryder Howe
Non-Fiction: memoir 301 pages
Book Count: 75

This is a fish out of water story with an unusual cast of characters. It is the story of a guy whose family is the definition of WASP who ends up opening a deli/convenience store with his wife and immigrant Korean mother-in-law. Also, he lives with his in-laws and their revolving door of family members new to the country who don't knock while his wife wants to start their family. He works days as an editor of a literary magazine with a one of a kind boss. And there are all the problems with starting a new business, especially when the owners all aren't on the same page an what they want to do.
