Reviews

An odd couple--a nonagenarian and a recently divorced reporter--engage in a series of discussions over mouthwatering dinners, from the importance of beauty, to living after loss, to the power of love to redeem and renew, to how to make a succulent duck breast. I loved every moment of this book and when it ended I mourned the loss of Edward in my life. Everyone deserves her own Edward--and everyone deserves to read this book. Susannah Cahalan, bestselling author of "Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness " A dinner with Edward is nothing to demur. Although the food (I am partial to the roast chicken, lovingly described) is excellent, it is the charming, sweet, and effortlessly wise company who make this sweet read a charming way to pass a day. I enjoyed my time at Edward's table. George Hodgman, bestselling author "Bettyville: A Memoir""

Vincent s descriptions of food, written with the sumptuous detail of a restaurant review, are something to savor, as are her recollections of Edward himself and the way he dedicated himself to living after having lost the love of his life. Delightfully combining the warmheartedness of Tuesdays with Morrie with the sensual splendor of Julie and Julia, this is a memoir to treasure.
