Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland. I have a love of glass, and I am really enjoying this novel version of biography. I went to the great museum in Winter Park, Florida when I lived in the area and this novel makes me want to go back, but life being what it is, the next time I'm in Florida, family concerns will probably over-ride the thought of a museum trip.

I'm rereading Craig Claiborne's autobiography, "A Feast Made for Laughter," (also has his top favorite 100 recipes). I read it years ago when it first came out (1982). Not sure what prompted me to pick it up again, but it's very interesting. He writes well, and lived a very interesting life -- right at the beginning of "Great American Food."

As well, his writing partner, Pierre Franey, was one of my esteemed mentors and teachers.

Yeah, I saw the previews and they got me interested in reading the book.
