If you're looking for more good nonfiction to read, consider this collection of essays called Alone In The Kitchen With An Eggplant-- I'll come clean and confess that a good friend edited it and that another has an essay in the book, but I still wouldn't be telling you to read it if I thought you wouldn't love it. It has essays by Murakami, Ann Patchett, plus a bunch of other lesser-known but equally talented writers, all on the subject of cooking and eating alone -- in the end it is more a book about solitude than about food, though food provides the perfect lens through which to study solitude. It isn't a cookbook (though there are a couple of recipes here and there) -- the essays are thought-provoking and literary and many of them manage to be fun as well.*Sigh* I've done a lot of cooking and eating alone in my life, so I have to read this. (Delia - thanks for being my savior!)
And I do think many of your readers would enjoy the book. If you want more background information or a brief description of the book, you can find it at Jenni's lovely website .
