This may be a common way of sweeping problems under the rug in Korean culture but it is totally inappropriate from the therapy’s perspective as it does not solve the root cause of the issue.

Everyone is just trying to be as okay as possible, after all-and seeing Sehee's processing of that in I Want to Die but I Want to Eat Tteokbokki is sure to make readers feel a little less alone in their own attempts. Baek acknowledges that she might never be entirely free of her dysthymia, but she can manage it, live with it, and understand it as part of her being. You have this superego that exerts control over you, a superego built not only from your own experiences but cobbled together from all sorts of things that you admire, creating an idealised version of yourself. each chapter consists of a transcription of part of a therapy session, with reflections before and after. Complemented by an array of revealing personal photographs, the narrative alternates between heartfelt nostalgia about the seedier side of Manhattan’s go-go scene and funny quips about her unconventional stage performances.which i can understand because this is just a record of baek sehee's recount of her talks with her psychiatrist, but it did make the reading experience less enjoyable. She has faced abuse and mistreatment of many kinds over the decades, but she touches on the most appalling passages lightly—though not so lightly you don't feel the torment of the media attention on the events leading up to her divorce from Tommy Lee. But because that’s not a validation that I am able to accept, there’s a limit to how satisfying it can be, and I become bored of it.

With a narrative assist from Stanton, the result is a consistently titillating and often moving story of human struggle as well as an insider glimpse into the days when Times Square was considered the Big Apple’s gloriously unpolished underbelly.

Though heartfelt, the forced neatness of Sehee’s diaristic installments feels unnatural when juxtaposed with the complicated interior life that she and her psychiatrist trawl for meaning. While there are occasional breaks in this patient/psychiatrist dialogue, these are brief, lasting one or two pages and consist of the author musing on the words of her psychiatrist or offering her own words of wisdom.Dan perasaan penulis yang dituangkan dalam buku ini mungkin merupakan pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang selalu ada di benakku. it's short and easy to inhale, and in translation the writing style is very straightforward and simplistic. As someone who feels simply ✨hollow✨ rather than having, say, violent feelings and suicidal desire, this book absolutely got it.

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of I WANT TO DIE BUT I WANT TO EAT TTEOKPOKKI by Baek Se-hee, a memoir/self-help book. Chapters address topics such as honesty, self-surveillance, self-esteem, medication, physical attractiveness, and more. Though her work was far from the Broadway shows she dreamed about, it eventually became all about the nightly hustle to simply survive. Overall, the book is really just snippets of conversation between her therapist and her, tape-recorded, transcribed and stitched together with diary-esque musings from the "author" that concludes with some feel-good cliches.

No matter where on that journey you may be, you are never truly alone and this book spoke for far more than what was contained in its pages. When you said you felt so comfortable with me, it made me feel pathetic that I was feeling uncomfortable myself. He is the winner of a PEN Translates grant and a PEN/Heim Translation Fund grant, among many others, and his translations include Kyung-Sook Shin's Violets, Bora Chung's Cursed Bunny, and Sang Young Park's Love in the Big City.
