Dy's Take

August 4, 2010

Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl

Filed under: audiobook,Memoir — Dy @ 18:03

(46) Ruth Reichl’s memoirs, volume 3

Definitely the best of Reichl’s three books. Probably because it is the one that discusses her personal life and neuroses the least, and her job the most. After all, if I’m reading the menu of a famous food critic, I want to read about the goofy/funny/serious/sad things that happened on the job, not the critic’s crumbling marriage (see volume 2 of this pedantic trilogy).

Overall, unless you have a free copy and nothing else to listen to in the car on the way to work in morning (like me), I wouldn’t bother. On the plus side, reading Reichl is not as annoying as reading Bourdain.
