"Stanley Tucci narrates this moving, funny, heartwarming, and gut-wrenching audiobook with vigor and style. Not surprisingly, he reads with an actor's attention to language, rhythm, and emotion. An Italophile, he pronounces the many mouthwatering Italian dishes—pastas, sauces, and signature cocktail recipes—with reverence. His delivery of his unalloyed love for generations of Tuccis is personal, and his account of his horrific battle with throat cancer is revealing. As he describes his lifelong preoccupation with cooking and cuisine, he sounds like an actor stepping to the front of the stage and talking directly to his audience. His memoir is to be relished—especially as an audiobook."
