I read the first Reichel book and was sort of entertained, the second tell all of affairs etc. I found disusting. A friend just reported that the new Gael Green auto-biography embarassed her, saying as should have the writer or anyone reading it. Wife of a Chef I found a bit whiny but in many ways amusing. I have just picked up Mimi Sheraton's new book, Eating My Words which I will start tonight. I have enjoyed Rhulman's books and Bourdains. Any favorites out there and why? Any you found pathertic and embarassing? Really I am not a prude, not with my appetite and sensual love of food, wine and cooking. But why oh why do some of these people need to embarass themselves in tell all print? Of one of the writers it was reported that the writer was totally indiscriminate in partners. If the opposite sex was capable the writer would have it. Is there a food collorary I am missing?
