Read in January, 2007

Best for the bit in which Liebling blames the demise of great French cooking on those modish child-labor laws, keeping nuances of the trade from being introduced at toddlerdom. He quotes the last of a line of French circus clowns whose legs were broken by his father, for, to quote roughly, "God bless him, he knew a clown should walk in a comical fashion."
