Today’s the publication date of Lucy Knisley’s splendid graphic-memoir-by-way-of-cookery, Relish. If you live in Boston, New York City, the Hudson River Valley, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, or Toronto, you should attend one of her events and get yourself a signed book!
It was my great pleasure to edit Relish, and it’s the peculiar lot of the editor to accumulate all these parenthood-ish feelings about a book, when you are neither the person who wrote, nor illustrated, nor designed, nor printed the book. But here we are anyway:
Relish is a special book for many reasons – it’s beautiful, it’s funny, it’s moving, it’s surprising, and it says a bunch of really smart, thoughtful, entertaining things about FOOD and EATING, two topics that are near and dear to all our hearts. This book is a real pleasure to read – leafing through it is one of those luxurious, indulgent acts that gets all of your senses involved in a delightful way.
I’m so happy you can read it now, too!
