This book just came today and I immediately started reading. About an hour later, I realized I'd been reading for an hour. This guy can write! He's very opinionated, but puts forth his ideas in such a charming way that one doesn't realize he's saying something pretty outrageous, e.g., Salade Nicoise is better without tuna.
Anyway, maybe I'll end up hating this book, but I love it so far. Wanted to thank MMRuth, I think, who first brought it to my attention.
What a sweet book - and beautiful, too. Also smallish.
