Tanya (TMSanchez) I read this memoir about 7 years ago when it was published. It was about a mercurial marriage between a semi-famous professor and his wife during the 50s and 60s. Was quite a snapshot of East-Coast intellectual life at the time. Had a lot in it about competitive dinner parties where people tried to outdo their friends with their renditions of recipes from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." Lots of affairs. I remember it was somewhat controversial that the author wrote about intimate details about the man (possibly a writer?) Does this ring a bell with anyone?
