I'm a cinematic addict but I like books, too.

Soy Sauce for Beginners

Soy Sauce for Beginners - Kirstin Chen This book was foodie heaven and a nearly gospel-like tribute to its settings.

Also Gretchen is pretty cool. She clearly needs to get her life together at the beginning, but even so you can tell through her narration that she's trying her best to keep calm despite the fact that her problems are so hard for her -- or anyone -- to solve. She goes from being 100% dedicated and faithful to her (white, American professor) husband to divorcing him for cheating on her with a much-younger Japanese girl to finding a Singaporean boyfriend to wavering to having to decide between the two men to "SCREW IT, I'M JUST GONNA TAKE CARE OF MY MOM AND RUN MY DAD'S SOY SAUCE BUSINESS."
