Tales from a Hungy Life - A Memoir Worth Savoring

Tales From A Hungry Life:  A Memoir with Recipes made me laugh out loud -- and cry. It's the story of Maria and her six brothers; a stray dog or two; a garage band; an Italian father and a Puerto Rican mother, and a raucous, high-spirited extended family  -- that turns from a rollicking tale to a heartfelt one of loss and remembrances (no spoilers here - you must, must read this memoir).

The setting is a character too -- Queens, New York, with all its diversity, comes alive with this writer's deft hand. The short, vividly written chapters all culminate with delicious recipes and spot on funny advice for any family. I loved the opening, a tragically-comedic chapter about the author's family home being struck by lighting, which ends with a recipe for blackened chicken.

I come from a large Italian-American family on my mother's side, and I could relate to the food, to the chaos, to the comedy in tragedy, which this author captures so well. This is a memoir to share! 

Heartfelt, vivid, funny and delicious-- Tales From A Hungry Life: A Memoir with Recipes is worth a read around the dining room table.  Kudos to my good friend Maria for writing such a tasty, fulfilling read!
