The jacket has a small chip at the top and bottom front corner. ; This is a delicious and compulsively readable account of the author's experience as an undercover food critic for the New York Times. She throws back the curtain on the sumptuously appointed stages of the epicurean world to reveal the comic absurdity, artifice and excellence there, giving us her remarkable reflections on role playing and identity. She also includes some of her favorite recipes and reviews. She writes of her disguises "Every restaurant is a theater. . . Even the modest restaurants offer the opportunity to become someone else, at least for a little while." ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 333 pages
