At the beach a few weeks ago I finished, Apron Anxiety: My Messy Affairs In and Out of the Kitchen. If you read the author's blog, then you know this "tell-all memoir" (<air quotes) describes Alyssa Shelasky and Good Stuff Eatery's Spike Mendelsohn's rocky relationship, with food tales tossed in (including a few tasty sounding recipes).
Yes, it's a bit trashy, and that's exactly why I liked it.
Ms. Shelasky is a good writer. She has a voice and a style all her own. I'm fond of her Carrie-like gift for asking pop candy questions ("When did tweeting become the new chain smoking?") and for zippy lines ( "Zagat is my Zoloft"). Apron Anxiety's pages kept me busy for a few hours, as I relaxed in my beach chair at the water's edge.
