Not becoming my mother

Not becoming my mother was written by Ruth Reichl. Ruth is a 'foodie' non-fiction author and in her previous books she frequently presented her mother as a person she did not want to be and/or become. While her previous 'mother' stories were humorous and bordered on the 'zany' this book which evolves out of letters and memorabilia which were stored in the basement, show a side of her mother that Ruth never dreamed existed.
