A post by one of my regular reads, EmilyStyle, was about the book 'Tender at the Bone'. She stated that "It's a vivid read about food critic Ruth Reichl's childhood and love affair with cooking." so I was instantly intrigued and requested it from my public library. I then read some of her reader comments and a few of them mentioned the book 'Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by the same author. They are both on their way to me.
