Good news for all of you non-e-book lovers: Tales From A Hungry Life: A Memoir With Recipes is now available in a Print Edition! You can find it on Amazon.com.
You’ll find all the same great stories as in the Kindle version, but the Print Edition also includes a Family Tree (for all you readers who said you needed to keep track of my giant immediate family) and an 8-page photo insert so you can match faces to the funny stories.
Come back with me to a time when disco was king and rock-n-roll was rebellion, the Dorothy Hamill was the “in” hairstyle, and no self-respecting Italian ate bottled spaghetti sauce. My book is filled with a hearty helping of old family recipes and stories that celebrate a time, a place, and a group of people who knew one thing: to eat together was to live.
Tales From A Hungry Life: A Memoir with Recipes is my best collection of coming of age stories. You’ll meet a girl (that girl is me, the only sister in a sea of six boys) who spent Wednesday afternoons with her Latino grandmother; thought that every barbecue included a tray of lasagna; spent a sweaty summer cutting her hair and hiding from the Son of Sam; and grew up to marry a handsome boy who faced life by her side with just one question: when do we eat?
I hope you all enjoy this book, which was a labor of love that has consumed me for 10 (yes, you read that right…TEN) years. I’m hoping to arrange a book signing and some other events, which I will let you know about.
Thanks, and happy reading.
