Eat Joy

DUE IN OCTOBER There are moments in our lives which imprint on our souls, and often when we recollect them, our memories entangle with sensory information.  The visceral quality of food as it relates to memory is unparalleled—sometimes we eat our favorite foods as comfort during grief, or a dish prepared by a friend becomes healing food from then on.  Eat Joy is a lively collection of autobiographical stories in which food plays a starring role (recipes included—and they are lovely!).  A diverse selection of celebrated authors tell stories of growth and loss, healing and homecoming, and the resulting collection is nothing short of magical.
