I have been in the food and wine business for over twenty years and thought that this would be right up my alley, it was not. The book can be transcribed in one sentence: She had sex with Elvis, Clint Eastwood, Burt Reynolds and a 2 bit porn star and ate foie gras everywhere she could order it and lived happily ever after.....there, now you don't have to read this book and waste your credits.

We have always enjoyed the New York Magazine articles by Gael Greene, dating back to the late 70's. This book is basically her autobiography, telling about her encounters with famous food (and other) people over the last 30 years. She is an excellent chronicler of the New York social scene, especially as it relates to food. It's interesting now to hear the "behind the scenes" story of some of the articles we read in the 70's and 80's, when we lived in Philadelphia and would make regular trips to NYC for food and plays.
It will help if you're a "foodie" when you listen to this book, and there is a lot of sex involved also, as she tells about her various escapades. But I loved it and listened to it in two days.
