Set mainly in Paris and Istanbul, several pasts and present, the narrator a young woman remembers her friendship with a famous writer but also her relationship with her family, in particular her mother. Central are also walks through both cities, food and drink, and then there is London and the ex boyfriend Luke. Poetic, beautiful writing, but a real story is missing.

An enjoyable little tale set on the canals of France. It was a little different to what I expected as I thought it would be more about books helping readers with their problems, a book about books. The translation is a little clunky, too, I enjoyed the journey, however, and loved the descriptions of the French countryside.

Funny. The tagged is the book that would have given me a bingo last month if I'd have altered my priorities.

The memoir of the editor at Knopf responsible for the publishing of Julia Child‘s Mastering the Art of French Cooking & the Knopf Cooks American series.

This was so interesting! It was fascinating to read through a life so heavily influenced by a love of food and cooking. Her friendships with the authors she worked with were delightful. & recipes at the end! Unfortunately, shorter than I would have liked, it felt very bullet point. 🌕🌕🌕🌗🌑

4⭐️ Don‘t read this book with an empty stomach! Zola‘s description of the abundance of food in the grand Les Halles is splendid 👌🏻He made sure that he covered every sections! The contrast between the “huge bellies and enormous breasts” of the Les Halles‘ ladies and the skinny fugitive suffering from chronic indigestion is brilliant — it‘s true that in every rich society there are still people suffering in poverty

LeahBergen I went to see Anthony Bourdain at an author event and he gushed about the importance of this book in his life. I‘ve been meaning to read it ever since! 6d
sisilia @LeahBergen I can understand that. It‘s like 84 Charring Cross Road for us bookworms 😸 6d
batsy This sounds great! And I love that cover. 6d
Tamra I‘m curious! 6d
