Loved your Angry Eggs piece in Best Food Writing 2012.

I second Jenn’s emotion, and can’t wait to see you (and your book) at Omnivore!

i love your book, I’m 2/3 through with, it’s great fun + loaded with good recipes, and I’m a passionate cook.

I loved your book — the food and recipes for sure, but especially the way you describe the poignant relationship with your father and how that circles around your shared love of food and eating. It’s just beautiful. And then — the contrast of your mother — and through the whole story I’m just rooting for you and Susan. Great stuff! Can’t wait to read the next one.

Pamela, thank you! My new book will be coming out in Fall 2015!

ELISSA, I loved your book! Can’t wait for next one. I’m hoping to encourage a faculty colleague of mine to use it in a college class that I created, Table Talk: the literature of food. Will let you know!
Just a beautiful story…
