I bought it in the Amazon Kindle format, which was a big mistake: many of the recipes look great, but it's hard to imagine cooking them from that tiny screen. I went that route for instant gratification and to save some money. Besides, as I already said, I wasn't sure I could read the thing. I'm sorry now for the electronics limitations because I wonder if L. might want to read it -- she lost her own beloved, silly father to pancreatic cancer when she was young, and he was relatively "old" at the time of his death. (Wizenberg's father was 75, which I thought might be a point of connection. Although some people apparently expected them to, neither L. nor Wizenberg ever extracted much comfort from losing beautiful, vibrant loved ones of advanced age.)
I have some quibbles with the book, but I 'm not doing a review here, and the great things about it far outweigh the caveats: check it if out if it interests you. Wizenberg's blog is Orangette.
