Comfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the Table

Comfort Me with Apples: More Adventures at the Table - Ruth Reichl I liked her first memoir, but this one is a kiss-and-tell, more more accurately, a screw-over-and-tell story of her disintegrating marriage and all the things wrong with her spouse. We all make mistakes, we all do things we're not proud of, but this particular airing of her and her ex's dirty laundry was not enjoyable for me. Left a bad taste in my mouth.
