My Favorite Author: A Giveaway!April 9, 2009
I just finished reading Eating with the Angels by my favorite author, Sarah-Kate Lynch. It’s an absolutely wonderful novel, many stories in one, with lots of interesting twists.
The official blurb:
Connie Farrell, a New York restaurant critic, is sitting in a first class seat on her way to Venice for the second honeymoon of a lifetime. There’s only one problem – Tom, her high school sweetheart and husband of ten years, is not sitting next to her. It seems downright rude. And not the least bit romantic. Enter Marco, an impossibly handsome gondolier, who guides her through the unimaginable delights of the city that has haunted her dreams – the water, the crumbling palaces, the dark and mysterious alleyways – and of course the mouth-watering delicacies, she is fed at every turn – makes it all seem too good to be true. Indeed, back home in New York her dreams become a nightmare. Connie must discover the truth, a dish at once harder to swallow and yet ultimately more delicious than any she could find in a four-star restaurant.
The problem with reading Sarah-Kate Lynch’s books, for me at least, is that there are very few of them to be found in this country. She is from New Zealand, and most of her books have not been published in the US. I find it rather remarkable that I’ve been able to read four of her novels to date. (Now, if I could just find the other two!)
Anyway, I figured I would pass on this book to anyone who might be interested in it so another US fan could be born. If you’d like to have it, please leave a comment no later than midnight EDT on Sunday, April 19 with a book recommendation of your own. I’m at a loss as to what I should read next…
