My Life Through Food

By Stanley Tucci
Narrated by: Stanley Tucci
Length: 6 hours 50 minutes


“If I did not already love Stanley Tucci before this, I would most certainly love him now. In true Stanley Tucci fashion, this memoir/cookbook/food writing tome is witty, acerbic, candid, and very, delicious. This book is a gift for foodies and non-foodies alike, but I dare you not to become a foodie after reading. I especially enjoyed the audiobook as it was read by the author himself. I felt like he was right next to me reading and it was a joyous experience! ”
