    Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments."

    The key to Jason Epstein's long and happy life in food is that if you want to eat well, cook it yourself. Moreover, he believes that you never make the same dish twice, that recipes are constantly changing, and nothing is written in stone. So what he gives us in this delicious little book are stories interwoven with recipes - of growing up in Maine, harvesting clams and oysters and lobsters, of working in a hamburger joint, of sailing to Europe, settling in the New York of yesterday and now in his current Manhattan world on the edge of Chinatown.
