A Slice of Apple Pie is a thoughtful memoir from the opening dedication to the surprise at the end. The story is an honest and revealing portrait recounting the vicisssitudes of an artist trying to find his place in the world. Shamlian shares intimate details and delicious images that will resonate with most readers. Who hasn't recalled a time in their life with food as the primary memory? The author's journey is defined by one culinary experience after another. Surely upon reading A Slice of Apple Pie, one will never think of creme brulee the same way again! This is a fine book. It captures the flavors and infusions of the varied ethnic groups that make Shamlian's narrative quintessentially American.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
