“Hitting bookshelves right now is The United States of Arugula. What a great title.”
–Frank Bruni of The New York Times
“...David Kamp’s lively, smart, horrendously titled new book.”
–A.O. Scott of The New York Times
But wow, I’ll still take the front page of the Sunday Times Book Review, that beautiful artwork by Ed Lam, and the favorable writeup from A.O. Scott, who, as readers of one of my Snob books are aware, is known to the cognoscenti as “Tony.” Title gripes aside, thanks, Tony. More on the big title debate anon.
And the book tour continues with some more appearances by yours truly this week:
On Monday, October 2, at 7 p.m., I will be appearing at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena, CA (Julia Child’s hometown).
On Tuesday, October 3, at 7:30 p.m., I will be appearing at Powell’s City of Books on Burnside in Portland, OR.
On Wednesday, October 4, at 7 p.m., I will be appearing at the University Book Store (the University District location) in Seattle, WA.
And on Friday, October 6, at 11:30 a.m., just hours after my return to New York, I’ll be participating in a chat with Clark Wolf, restaurant consultant and foodie-culture analyst extraordinaire, at New York University–specifically, at the Fales Collection (3rd floor of the Bobst Library on Washington Square South).
