Uh. Well, I could do without the "men are like X; women are like Y" business throughout. Also, is this book organized? At all? The subject matter is divided into chapters, but none seem to have more than a very vague purpose except the last, which focuses, oddly, on "seductive food." Wasn't this a book about eating alone? What is going on here?

I think the real issue is that Deborah Madison writes cookbooks, not books of essays or stories, and the consequent lack of structure just makes this less compelling.
