Reviewer Paul Jameson writes"Mike Veseth’s Wine Wars is broader than simply a book on the economics of wine, but it definitely looks at the trends that shaped the global wine industry as it has become today from an economist’s perspective...anyone with an intellectual curiosity as to how all the factors came together to produce the wines available to us today will find much in Wine Wars to satisfy that curiosity."

Judith Newton (ursula70) | 8 comments Free Kindle Edition of my food memoir Tasting Home on June 27-28 on Amazon.

Tasting Home, winner of ten independent press awards, is a memoir about our longing for home, the many forms that home can take, and the role of food in our having it.

"Engaging," "delightful and resonant" with "plenty of insight." Publisher's Weekly Starred Review.

"This is a baby-boomer's dream: a book full of anecdotes about coming of age during the sexual revolution of the sixties -- with recipes! . . . an ingeniously conceived, tightly written, and beautifully packaged memoir, a vibrant portrait of the American feminine cultural experience from the 1950s forward." Independent Publishers.

"Tasting Home is more than a food memoir. Influenced by the civil rights struggle, the women's movement, and the AIDS epidemic, it is an odyssey of emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth. Cooking serves as a powerful metaphor for the difficulties and pleasures of relations among mothers and daughters; husbands and wives; gays and heterosexuals; and racial-ethnic groups. Tasting Home, like a grand meal, is a resounding success." --Belinda Robnett, author of How Long? How Long? African-American Women in the Struggle for Civil Rights.
