About the Author:

Linda Ellerbee is a veteran of award-winning shows on NBS, CBS, and ABC, including the pioneering late-night program NBC News Overnight and the prime-time series Our World. She now runs Lucky Duck Productions.

From Booklist:

Veteran television correspondent Ellerbee is well known and well regarded for her verve, humor, and irreverence. A self-described "recovering journalist who's traveled and eaten her way around the planet and lived to tell some tales," she offers an amazing glance back on the times and meals of her life of 60 years. In the course of her meanderings, she describes her girlhood in Texas in the 1950s, coming-of-age and hippie-hood in the 1960s, marital failures, parenting success, career disappointments, breast cancer, and mature, true love--all against the backdrop of both fabulous and mundane locales and mouthwatering meals. Ellerbee recalls eating caviar on Malcolm Forbes' yacht and admitting that he was a far better human being than the one she had intended to lambaste in an article; discovering the connection between lunch and lust in Paris as she and her husband try to revive a flagging marriage; and rediscovering her mother's fudge pie recipe as she and her longtime Texas girlfriends recall their youthful obsessions (each chapter ends with a recipe). Readers who have enjoyed Ellerbee's And So It Goes (1986) and Move On (1991), and even those who haven't, will absolutely love this remembrance of a life well lived. It is every bit as delicious as the food she describes. Vanessa Bush
