Song of Songs is the source for the title. Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples: for I am sick of love.” This sequel to Tender at the Bone takes up where the book stops and describes Reichl gradual rise from writer for a small publication to Gourmet magazine. Along the way, she has lovers, discards one husband to take another, has and loses a beloved child. Told with honesty and interspersed with recipes, it is almost impossible to put down.
