I haven’t read any of Ruth Reichl’s books (even though a friend lent me Garlic and Sapphires years ago), but I was excited to pick up Save Me the Plums since I have heard so many good things about it. It’s on a ton of summer reading lists, including my favorite by Modern Mrs. Darcy. And, when I read the epigraph, which is one of my favorite poems by William Carlos Williams, I was sold. This is a wonderful memoir about the former editor of Gourmet magazine. Grab it and put it in your summer reading bag. You won’t be disappointed!
