Editorial Reviews

Review

TastingHome is more than a food memoir. Influenced by the civilrights struggle, the women's movement, and the AIDS epidemic, it is an odysseyof emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth.  Cooking serves as a powerful metaphor for thedifficulties and pleasures of relations among mothers and daughters; husbandsand wives; gays and heterosexuals; and racial-ethnic groups.  TastingHome, like a grand meal, is a resounding success.  --Belinda Robnett, author of How Long? How Long? African-American Womenin the Struggle for Civil Rights.

"This is a baby-boomer's dream: a book full of anecdotes about coming of agein during the sexual revolution of the sixties -- with recipes! . . . an ingeniously conceived, tightly written, and beautifully packagedmemoir, a vibrant portrait of the American feminine cultural experiencefrom the 1950s forward." Independent Publisher

"In this captivating memoir, Newton draws the reader into a world where major events are brought to life with poignant food memories. . . . Each vignette ispitch-perfect, lively, and engaging, striking a delicate balance between self-disclosure and universal themes of  acceptance, love,community-building, and political engagement." --Janet A. Flammang, author of
The Taste for Civilization: Food, Politics, and Civil Society
