Garlic and Sapphires

Ruth Reichel
This is a cleverly writting autobiograpy of one of the New York Times most celebrated restaurant critic.  In a time where restaurant PR was falling over backwards to impress critics, Ruth devises a plot to thwart restaurant staff and provide “real” reviews for her readers.
