This was a fantastic read! I found myself unable to put the book down, because I didn't want to miss a thing. I was overwhelmed with emotions...I laughed, cried, dropped my jaw in shock, and was filled with admiration for the woman's strength and perseverance. Kinky Gazpacho leads you to a place you didn't know existed. She teaches you that things are not always what they seem on the surface, and you need to look to the past in order to appreciate and comprehend the present.

I absolutely loved this memoir; it was a simple and lightweight read that packed a punch of reality that is undeniable. I devoured her memoir in utter anticipation of what her next move in life would be and was overjoyed over her boldness and determination to uncover a black past in a country where most of its citizen were unaware of the world that had come before and still revolved around them. The only flaw with the book is that it leaves you wanting to know and experience more of her life and general thoughts. Kinky Gazpacho will bring you on a journey that is so much more than merely a life led by a woman who dares to open her mouth and question her surroundings.

"Review" by , "Joining the ranks of such fine books as Frances Mayes's Under the Tuscan Sun and Sarah Turnbull's Almost French, Lori Tharps takes us on an adventure of love, language, and travel. In her capable hands, it's not a small world after all — but rather a big one, with much to discover and a great deal of fun to be had."
"Review" by , "With flawless agility, Tharps...juggles a coming-of-age story, a portrait of the writer as a young woman, a travel book and a detective story along with a memoir about learning to love oneself and one's world."
"Synopsis" by , Growing up and outsider in a white suburb, Lori Tharps dreamed of finding a place where race didn't matter. As an optimistic college student, she looked for that place in Spain. But her innocent dream was shattered when she discovered that racism is everywhere. Except, perhaps, in the heart of the Spaniard she unexpectedly falls for and marries — and that's where the adventure really begins.
