Time to comment on TENDER AT THE BONE by Ruth Reichl

One Book...One Literacy Council read Ruth Reichl's Tender at the Bone this month.

If you have thoughts about this memoir, share them here!

We will meet on Monday, December 8, 2014, at Noon at DCLC to discuss the book and to distribute Still Life with Bread Crumbs, by Anna Quindlen.

CAUTION: Comments may contain spoilers!


  1. Loved the book. Do we all have crazy mothers? I have two others of her books that I own if any one wants to borrow them I will drop them off: Garlic & Sapphires & Comfort me with apples. I love nonfiction like this.

    Really enjoyed the rather long August Wilson play. Wish I could have participated in the discussion explaining it all. So relevant in these times.

  2. I also loved the book. I think the mother part is something many women authors find helpful to address - maybe it helps them to work out that complicated relationship we have with our mothers! I don't speak French, but wished I did as I read this. She was funny and refreshing in her descriptions of all the characters and experiences that shaped her into a foodie. Pam M.
