The Write Stuff

Also in the national eye this week is Luca d'Italia, with a review of Frank Bonanno's casual-chic temple to fine dining eye-tie style appearing in the Best Food Writing 2004 compilation just out under the Avalon imprint and available in fine bookstores everywhere. The piece is long and rambling, full of bad language, pointless literary discursions and disgustingly graphic descriptions of the effects of terminal truffle narcosis on the human body. But then, I wrote it, so would you really expect anything less?

Pikers can read my review ("Way to Go," September 25, 2003) in the online archives at www.westword.com, but you really should buy the book. I don't get paid any extra if you do, and the thing is crammed with the work of about fifty other great writers, most of whom actually talk about the food -- unlike yours truly.
