What an unpleasant human being. Once you get the murky adjective stew, the recipe for which can be found at any MFA writer's workshop, the result is a lot of time spent with someone with few visible redeeming qualities. She does have a good eye for detail and is descriptive about the experience of working in a professional kitchen. Look up her previously published articles on that and skip the personal drama.

And why did she stop speaking to her mom for twenty years? Because her mom is poor? Because she's lonely? Ugh.
