    Story
    (425)

    Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty fierce, hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Above all she sought family, particularly the thrill and the magnificence of the one from her childhood that, in her adult years, eluded her. Hamilton’s ease and comfort in a kitchen were instilled in her at an early age when her parents hosted grand parties, often for more than one hundred friends and neighbors.

    Melinda says: "A Little Prickly--But Yummy"
    "Inspiringly strong female autobiographer."

    Story
    Where does Blood, Bones & Butter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorite audiobooks, mostly because of how closely i felt i could identify with the author


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood, Bones & Butter?

    Descriptions of the parties her parents threw at her childhood house.


    What does Gabrielle Hamilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    An autobiographical book being read by the author brings a whole new level of understanding to the reader about the persona of the author/main character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she visits her mother later in life with her own family and, in a way, forgives or makes peace with her memories.


    Any additional comments?

    I would especially recommend for women, those interested in cooking, Italy or with lives or loved ones that bring them between Europe and the U.S.
