Books I read in March

I’m quite fond of memories focused on nutrition and I read two great ones last month, one of them. Taste: My Life Through Food by Stanley Tucci. Tucci’s grandparents emigrated from Calabria to the United States, so as a child he grew up in Westchester, New York, where he enjoyed a great deal of traditional Italian cuisine. Food has also had a big impact on her acting career, including the director’s first feature film ‘Big Night’ in 1996, about two brothers who run an Italian restaurant. As expected, the names of celebrities are being removed a bit, but Tucci also provides a great insight into how catering works on movie sets and now has the luxury of choosing projects where in the world they are shot and whether or not. the food will be good. It also describes the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of a tumor at the base of the tongue found a few years ago, leaving them unable to eat properly. Less than a regular chronological memory and more about the importance of food in your life, ‘Taste’ is a sweet read nonetheless.

Topa Nigel Slater

To your liking, British cuisine from the 1960s and 1970s. Toast: The Story of a Boy’s Hunger by Nigel Slater it may not be as enjoyable as Tucci’s Italian diet, but it is described as intense as it is. In short snapshots, Slater recalls his childhood food in the Wolverhampton district, from canned ham, Fray Bentos cakes and Surprise peas, to silly trinkets, molasses cake and Arctic pastries. Unlike Tucci’s memory, which prevents her from delving too deeply into her private life, Slater reveals the dysfunctional family dynamics of her adolescence. His mother, who was a great cook by all accounts, died at the age of nine from an asthma attack. Her father remarried and Slater had a difficult relationship with her stepmother. He wholeheartedly admits that the lemon meringue cake was excellent, and they ended up competing for his father’s love through cooking. This is an honest and sometimes unflattering memory of adulthood that is written in a suggestive way.

Disaster tourist Yun Ko-eunTranslated from Korean by Lizzie Buehler, The Disaster Tourist by Yun Ko-eun is an eco-thriller, a genre that will spread everywhere in the coming years, and Yona Kim, the program director of a tourism agency in the Jungle, and organizes package holidays to disaster areas. She has been sexually harassed by her boss and is persuaded to visit the fictional island of Mui near Vietnam to find out if she should be kept in the company’s books, for example, if a major catastrophe could occur and how far it could go. it would bring in revenue if one were designed. There the events become more and more bizarre and darker satirical, in stark contrast to the sunny design of the skin. Overall, ‘The Disaster Tourist’ was probably a bit surreal for my liking and from #MeToo to climate activism it tries to get too much into current affairs, but it certainly gives a lot of thought.

State of the Union Nick HornbyState of the Union: A Marriage in Ten Parties by Nick Hornby It’s the 2019 BBC TV series of the same name, starring Rosamund Pike Louise and Chris O’Dowd Tom, who seek marriage counseling after a relationship with Louis. Each of the ten chapters begins when they meet at a pub near Kentish Town before the weekly counseling session. With minimal description and honest dialogue, it’s more like reading a script that has removed some of the direction from the scene than literary prose, and watching the TV series with it certainly helps because of the nuance of Pike and O’Dowden’s performances. It is written in the briefcase that even though a persistent issue of fiction in the late 2010s features middle-class characters reflecting on Brexit, it is now very difficult not to conclude: “Well, you think you’re in trouble now, wait and see. The 2020s. ”
