NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - "Reichl's compulsively readable novel is a treat for anyone who loves a warm, character-packed tale--a delectable mix of flavor, fantasy, and emotional comfort food."--O: The Oprah Magazine

The debut novel from the beloved food critic and author of The Paris Novel, featuring an exclusive conversation between Ruth Reichl and Emily Giffin

Billie Breslin has traveled far from her home in California to take a job at Delicious!, New York's most iconic food magazine. At first, Billie feels like a fish out of water--until she is welcomed by the magazine's colorful staff and seduced by the vibrant downtown food scene. Then an unexpected turn of events leads Billie to a miraculous discovery. In a hidden room in the magazine's library, she finds a cache of letters written during World War II by Lulu Swan, a plucky twelve-year-old, to the legendary chef James Beard. Lulu's letters provide Billie with a richer understanding of history and inspire Billie to come to terms with her fears and her ability to open her heart to love.

Through her bestselling memoirs, including Tender at the Bone and Comfort Me with Apples, Ruth Reichl has achieved a special place in readers' hearts. Now, with this magical novel, she has created a sumptuous world that will enchant you.
