What Was Said
“Carol Pulitzer is a big girl’s Eloise. These stories are outrageous, spunky, naughty, laugh out loud funny, deep, and so well written. They are a great read.”
Blythe Danner, Tony and Emmy award winning actress/ activist
“Like a post-modern chef, Pulitzer serves herself up as a tasting menu of amuse-bouches, hors d'oeuvres, and bonbons, each dish composed of art, words, and recipes, all bracingly bittersweet. Try one. Have another. Indulge yourself.”
Gary L. Goldman, Screenwriter/producer who worked on Total Recall, Big Trouble in Little China, Minority Report, Navy SEALs, Next, and Basic Instinct.
These short stories are delightful--witty and poignant and beautifully written--about subjects as diverse as Trump Tower in NYC and eating oysters in New Orleans and discovering pearls. Not to mention that they are sprinkled with recipes, which everyone who has ever dined in New Orleans knows are as valuable as, well, pearls! You could read one every morning and feel as if you've just taken a Happy Pill. Go on, take a handful.
Chris Wiltz, author of The Last Madam: A Life in the New Orleans Underworld
