Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for TENDER AT THE BONE by Ruth Reichl.

"This gastronomic delight is best taken slowly so that readers can savor each word. Motivated by fear of her mother's bizarre cooking escapades ("She liked to brag about 'Everything Stew,' a dish invented while she was concocting a casserole out of a two-week-old turkey carcass"), Reichl learned to cook early and her entertaining descriptions of kitchen disasters are sure to cause howls of laughter time and again. There were also some requisite difficulties, too, and readers will wince while reading of the author's weight battles and self-image problems while growing up; her college roommate's estrangement; and her mother's mental imbalances. Every job she took, from social work to commune cook, gave her one more piece of experience that eventually led to her current career, that of restaurant reviewer and writer extraordinaire. As an added bonus, this thoroughly enjoyable memoir also includes recipes that will make readers' mouths water."
- School Library Journal (US)

"Reading Ruth Reichl on food is almost as good as eating it . . . Reichl makes the reader feel present with her, sharing the experience."
- Washington Post Book World

"A poignant, yet hilarious, collection of stories about people [Reichl] has known and loved, and who, knowingly or unknowingly, steered her on the path to fulfill her destiny as one of the world's leading food writers."
- Chicago Sun-Times

"While all good food writers are humorous few are so riotously, effortlessly entertaining as Ruth Reichl."
- New York Times Book Review
