SAVE ME THE PLUMS My Gourmet Memoir

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Ruth Reichl

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Like her lively writing, Ruth Reichl's performance is inviting and engaging. Reichl's latest memoir is a juicy account of her decade as the editor in chief of the fabled culinary magazine GOURMET. Her fans will be happy to discover that, once again, she narrates her own work, and new listeners are in for a treat. Her clear affection for her co-workers, her passion for food and food writing, and her anger and dismay over the magazine's abrupt closure resonate in her natural-sounding narration. Foodies will find much to enjoy, but Reichl also recounts with warmth and bemusement the experience of working for media behemoth Condé Nast, where glamour and big personalities were the norm. A must-listen for anyone interested in publishing, writing, and, of course, food. E.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
