Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Notable Book

Book News Annotation:

This hybrid of biography, history, and publishing yarns provides an American culinary and social history from the mid-19th century through the 1970s, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at a slice of publishing history. Mendelson, a freelance journalist and culinary historian, uses correspondence, family papers, and publishing documents to recreate the story of the American classic, which began as a self-published collection of recipes in 1931 when Irma Rombauer needed some extra Depression-era income after her husband's tragic suicide.
