You guys, it’s DECEMBER already. What happened? Actually, I think I know what happened: time got swallowed up in the SDZ (sleep deprivation zone). But now the twins (pictured above) are three months old (!). And the human baby and I have settled into a routine rich with literary supplement (favorite subjects: apiary and the […]
And with a grand voilà, here it is: I am so thrilled to share with you the cover of my new book! Isn’t it gorgeous? Just gazing at those café tables makes me want to hop on a plane to Paris to sip wine and eat cheese. I especially love that the photo was taken […]
I was so honored (and, to be honest, a little nervous) to be tagged by the novelist Stephanie Cowell on this questionnaire about my current work in progress. I always feel a bit weird talking about a book that’s not yet published. But I also wanted to share a little of what I’m working on […]
I’m so excited to share the cover for the Polish edition of Kitchen Chinese! Called “Love in Five Flavors” the book is published by Nasza Ksiegarnia and is currently available throughout book stores in Poland. And speaking of books — I’d love to know, what’s on your summer reading list?
There’s something I’ve been wanting to tell you, mes amis, but I didn’t want to jinx it. But now that the news has appeared today in Publishers Lunch, I’m so excited to announce: I’m writing another book! Here’s what happened… I was working very happily on my second novel — about a female sommelier — when […]
Bom dia, amigos! No, I haven’t started studying Portuguese (I wish!), but I am excited to share the newest edition of Kitchen Chinese, Una Americana em Pequim, which was just published in Portugal by ASA Editores. I received copies last week and they are truly gorgeous with beautiful spot-gloss, French flaps and other bells and […]
I’m so excited, mis amigos, about the Spanish edition of Kitchen Chinese. Called Chino Para Principiantes — which translates to “Chinese for Beginners” — the book is currently available in bookstores throughout Spain. Ediciones B is the publisher and more information is available here!
Thanks to Kristin Espinasse at French-Word-a-Day and Lauren Goldenberg from Shakespeare and Co., I’m thrilled to share some photos from Monday’s reading and wine-tasting. An author’s favorite sight: a window display full of her books. Pretending not to be nervous before the event. But actually, the room was so cozy and the audience so welcoming and supportive, I […]
People sometimes ask me what it feels like to publish a book and the truth is, it’s like a roller-coaster: you waver between exhilaration and sheer terror. But the highs are really high, and next Monday will (I hope) be one of them, when I present Kitchen Chinese at the venerable Shakespeare & Co. This Latin Quarter bookstore […]
Apologies for the recent paucity of posts, mes amis. I just got back from a whirlwind trip to the States and I am still struggling to catch up with everything that happened while I was away. It was a lovely trip — well worth the backlog! — capped off by a terrific reading at Borders […]« Previous Entries
