“The author (and chef) knows how to get the most from her ingredients, and she uses not only irony but also self-deprecating humor and poignant understatement with delicate precision.”―Booklist (Booklist)
"Fussell serves up the story of her life with the same cutting wit and pungent detail that distinguish her cookbooks."--Elle (Wendy Smith Elle)
“[Fussell] marks the passage of time through foods eaten, tastes discovered, pots and pans employed―and then ladles on salacious detail as the gravy. This is juicy stuff.”―New York Times Book Review (Susan Bolotin New York Times Book Review)
"Fussell has led a fascinating life during interesting times, and tells her story with a down-to-earth realness and inhibition that keeps you engrossed from decade to decade. . . . There is no question who has come out on top in this war."―Carolyn W. Fanelli, PopMatters.com (Carolyn W. Fanelli PopMatters.com)
