Gloria Vagrant Appetite

Hi, what a great review. I've been re-reading Reichl's 'Comfort Me With Apples' which charts her transition from a cook at a commune in Berkeley to being a food critic. Its great and takes in China, Thailand, Paris in her foodie missions. I think I'll be picking up her new one, sounds interesting!


Thanks Gloria. I have just banned myself from Borders, for at least a month. I swung in today, to get the magazine I was looking for yesterday, got it, and then saw that Ruth's other two books, Comfort Me with Apples and Tender to the Bone are part of the buy 2, get 3 promotion. Yep, I now have the full Ruth collection, along with a mystery/suspense story, Dogs of Babel, about a woman whose dog somehow helps her find out who killed her husband.




I love Ruth Reichel's books. I've read both of them, and I'm so looking forward to Garlic and Sapphires. Thanks for writing a review. You tempt me to actually buy the book, instead of waiting until the library gets a copy.
