    I'd love to know why this anthology started with one of the weakest pieces and was narrated by a man when the majority of the pieces were written by women These two things nearly made me give up on it early but but I persevered and whilst the collection was weak overall with too many similar pieces in the final section I did enjoy Lobster Lessons by Aleksandra Crapanzano From the Land by Max Brooks although probably because I grow my own food too and it was an interesting look at his parents Anne Bancroft Mel Brooks I loved the idea of Mel Brooks fussing over his tomato plants and most of all Talk with Your Mouth Full by Catherine Newman which reminds me of my own experiences of motherhood although the perfect date is rare whilst the wondering would you ever have a normal meal again was less so

    Loved it Was one of the books I took with me while backpacking around Europe last year and finished it in a matter of days despite trying to make it last longer The variety or stories are wonderful and its a great read
