Ruth Reichl - "Delicious!"
“While all good food writers are humorous . . . few are so riotously, effortlessly entertaining as Ruth Reichl
. . . . She is also witty, fair-minded, brave, and a wonderful writer.”— New York Times Book Review
As the New York Times quote states above, Ruth Reichl
is a born storyteller and gifted writer. Through her restaurant reviews and her memoirs, she has achieved a special place in the hearts of readers. Now, she turns to fiction in her debut novel, Delicious! (A Random House hardcover, on sale May 6).
At the heart of this book is an unforgettable character—Billie Breslin—who leaves California for New York to start a new job at a food magazine and to begin a new life, leaving behind her family, and a heartbreaking mystery about her beloved sister.
Reichl carries the reader to the colorful world of downtown New York restaurateurs and artisanal purveyors, and from the bustling food shop in Little Italy where Billie works on weekends to a hidden room in the magazine’s library where she discovers intriguing letters written by a girl in Ohio to James Beard over 50 years ago. Little does Billy know that these letters will soon change her life forever.
Weaving together a love story, a family tragedy, and the search to uncover secrets from the past and the present, Delicious! explores themes of reinvention, identity, and independence. Reichl has given us a beautiful coming of age story and has proven once again that food defines us and brings us together. It is an exciting and fun novel, even as it eloquently makes the case that it is those closest to us who most often elude us.
Reserved Seating is available, call the Warwick's Book Dept. (858) 454-0347 to purchase.
