This book is amazing, please come over and read it while eating my homemade babganoush and tomato salad, drinking wine under the tree in the backyard where the eggplant and tomates grew, because really, that is home it should be experienced. Also if u plan to visit any of these communes or now defunct communes take me with you. xo
