Reviews
"This work features dark humor and stunning gastronomic descriptions that will speak to Fussell's contemporaries and astonish younger generations fighting different battles today."--Library Journal
"The author (and chef) knows how to get the most from her ingredients, and she uses not only irony but also self-deprecating humor and poignant understatement with delicate precision."--Booklist
"[Fussell] marks the passage of time through foods eaten, tastes discovered, pots and pans employed--and then ladles on salacious detail as the gravy. This is juicy stuff."--New York Times Book Review
"Fussell serves up the story of her life with the same cutting wit and pungent detail that distinguish her cookbooks."--Elle
"Fussell has led a fascinating life during interesting times, and tells her story with a down-to-earth realness and inhibition that keeps you engrossed from decade to decade. . . . There is no question who has come out on top in this war."--Carolyn W. Fanelli, PopMatters.com-- (4/15/2009 12:00:00 AM)
