Ruth Reichl's disclaimer right off the bat is that some things may have been embellished. We do not prefer to hear that from every author, as some smoke and mirrors have their place. But that initial admission earns Ruth a place in our hearts as we follow her from childhood to the early years with husband Doug. Every memory, even the painful ones, are too ethereal and delicate to analyze too closely, lest they dissolve like bubbles in midair.This book combines the guilty pleasures of An American Childhood, How The Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and "Strike." This is an unforgettable, must read book, to be savored in a cozy hideaway with a stash of fine chocolate and a bottle of wine.
