I listened to this book which was read by the author - which gave it a special quality. In particular it was fun to hear Gabrielle do an impression of her husband's Italian husband. This was a compelling and fascinating read. Hamilton had a pretty edgy life after the age of 13 or so when her parents divorced and pretty much abandoned her and her younger brother (the older ones made it out ok). Listening to her talk about food and the role it plays in her life is the best part. Her family, her experiences and her visits to Italy with her husband really make for a great read. She also spend some time in Ann Arbor while getting her MFA so it was fun to hear her impressions of the experience from an outsider. Fans of food, and memoirs will love this book.
