My thoughts exactly: I thought I was going mad when I saw this cookbook. Perhaps it’s a brilliant new take on the “memories of home” cookbook genre. Can we look forward to the _Black Boy_ cookbook? Or recipes from _Bastard Out of Carolina_? And why limit ourselves to the South. Perhaps we can cook the food of the deprived and impoverished childhoods of Maya Angelou (San Francisco) and Betty Smith (Brooklyn), too.
