About this title

Synopsis:

One afternoon in 1968 Clay Felker, founder and power behind the much-heralded New York magazine, asked Gael Greene to be the restaurant critic of his infant weekly. Though a passionate foodie, Greene had never reviewed a restaurant in her life, but the prospect of writing for a magazine that was already the talk of the town, alongside such media stars as Tom Wolfe, Gloria Steinem and Jimmy Breslin, not to mention dining in the world's great restaurants on someone else's dime, was too enticing to turn down. Thus began Gael Greene's long and marvellous career charting the course of social history through the restaurants that changed the way America ate, the chefs who turned cooking into an art form and the foods and wines that launched a culinary revolution. From the afternoon in a Detroit hotel when she didn't say no to Elvis Presley and through trysts with Hollywood icons, celebrated chefs and a notorious porn star, Greene has always maintained that food and sex are inextricably linked, and in this delicious, infectiously passionate memoir, she takes readers on a joyride into some unforgettable kitchens and bedrooms.

Review:

'Insatiable serves as a reminder of how fresh and clever Ms Greene can be. Shameless too' - NEW YORK TIMES 'An outrageously fun memoir from novelist and longtime New York magazine dining critic Greene that reads more like Who-I-Slept-With rather than What-I-Ate...Lively and large-spirited, her account sizzles' - KIRKUS '...Fun memoir...with breathless descriptions of sexual trysts and travel tales' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
