About the Author:

Ruth Reichl is the editor in chief of Gourmet magazine and the author of the bestsellers Tender at the Bone and Comfort Me with Apples. She has been the restaurant critic at the New York Times and the food editor at the Los Angeles Times.

From AudioFile:

Ruth Reichl's mother was smart and sassy, colorful and capable--and miserably unhappy about conforming to a woman's role in a man's world. Determined that her daughter Ruth would pursue a career other than simply being someone's wife, Miriam Brudno was not thrilled with Ruth's early marriage or culinary writing. (Reichl is now the editor-in-chief of GOURMET magazine.) Reichl's capable narration of this insightful memoir reveals a gradual blossoming of empathy for her mother as she discovers personal correspondence and odd bits of her diary. Reading at a brisk pace, Reichl punctuates her mother's sometimes-astonishing pronouncements with wry humor and realizes too late--after her mother's death--the extent of her wish for Ruth to find the satisfaction she never achieved.
