Thank you, Ruth Reichl, for returning to writing your memoirs. Although I enjoyed your novel, Delicious! and tried the recipe in the back of the book for gingerbread cake, I missed your real life. I laughed so hard at your disguises in Garlic and Sapphires and felt so nostalgic when reading Comfort Me with Apples. I missed your life commentary with funny asides and endearing messy foibles.
Now you are back with Save Me the Plums – just when I need motivation to read again. I look forward to your tale about your adventures with one of my favorite defunct magazines – Gourmet (I miss reading it too.)
Kate Betts teased me with her review yesterday in the Sunday New York Times, calling it “a poignant and hilarious account.” She mentions recipes – oh joy! I may have to eat chocolate cake while reading.
I am off to find your book….
