Even though I’m light-headed and sick (just a bad cold, I think, will hopefully be back to normal tomorrow), there’s a little voice in the back of my head singing, “They liked my book! They liked my book!” That’s going to carry me for quite a while, I think, and beat back the imposter syndrome.
A starred review from PW — I’ve never gotten one of those before, even for Bodies in Motion, which was my big ‘serious’ book, the one that got translated into six languages.
Makes me feel like in all the flailing around of the last few years, trying to figure out what I should be working on, I did something right. Food writing is one of my big things, apparently. Who knew?
(Yes, probably everyone knew. I know! I’m going to go through my fiction sometime soon and pull out cooking & food paragraphs from all the books, just for the fun of it.)
