Blue plate special : an autobiography of my appetites

Title: Blue plate special : an autobiography of my appetites
This is a fun book to read IMHO. The author recounts her childhood, parts of which were spent as a hippie in Berkeley, and her formative years spent in areas all over the country. There are times that it seems like she can’t wait to get away from her family, and times she can’t wait to either get back to them, or to establish relationships that are quasi-family.
When she says “appetites” with a plural, she’s not kidding – hunger can take many forms, both physical and emotional. This was a rollicking read.
