The Spice Necklace: My Adventures in Caribbean Cooking, Eating, and Island Life by Ann Vanderhoof
The Spice Necklace: My Adventures in Caribbean Cooking, Eating, and Island Life

Timothy W, January 28, 2013

Quick, interesting read that captures your appetite from the get go. Part travelogue, part cook book, that follows a couple bouncing around the Caribbean exploring the culture and ciusine of the various islands. You will quickly develop a serious case of 'those lucky ducks' while reading this. Although, I wonder why they skipped Puerto Rico since they started in the Dominican Republic and hit all teh other islands.

Travels with Charley in Search of America (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century) by John Steinbeck
Travels with Charley in Search of America (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

Timothy W, September 20, 2011

An enjoyable and overlooked little ditty by one of America's best writers. Riding Rocinante, his somewhat less than noble four wheeled steed, Steinbeck ventures out across the country in 1960. Much like Bukowski, Steinbeck does a fine job at blending fact and fiction into a seamless tale. Another parallel to Bukowski is that the best bits are the ones involving drinking. Although Steinbeck’s involve drinking with others as opposed to Bukowski's solitary benders.
