Book A Day: The Tenth Muse
Reading about Judith Jones' life in The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food is just fascinating. If you're someone who loves food and editing, like I do, you'll probably grow quite envious while reading this. I wonder why I couldn't have her life.
You'll learn about how Jones became an editor at Knopf and find out interesting things about the authors she worked with. Here's a woman who interacted with Julia Child and Marcella Hazan and Jim Beard. She has had a wonderful life filled with all the things I wish I could do in my life.
And there are recipes at the back of the book. I haven't made any yet, but I have "A Cornish Hen with Herbal Stuffing Under the Skin, Broiled" bookmarked.
There were a few parts I skimmed more than read, but for the most part, I really enjoyed Jones' writing and life story, and I think you will too.
If you have read this book, what did you think?
Remember, I'm away until March 20, so you won't get responses from me until then.
