Ready to Eat… I Mean “Talk Turkey”?

While searching the Internet for discussion questions for G&S, I learned that Ruth Reichl is an Executive Producer for a FOX film based on her wonderful memoir about her tenure as the NY Times Restaurant Critic.  states that the film is set for release in 2008 but due to the fact that it is still in production there isn’t much information right now about the project.  I am so excited about this!

Though I have scoured the Internet for some discussion questions on “Garlic & Sapphires” I haven’t had much luck.  I did find an interview with Ruth Reichl from The CBS Early Show (INTERVIEW) with Reichl discussing some of her disguises.  Then I came across audio interviewfrom Barnes & with Reichl as well as a Q&A from with Reichl. 

I would like to know if you were happy with this Planet Books read?  What would you like to discuss about the book, “Garlic & Sapphires”. 

Personally (as you may have gathered from previous posts) I LOVED this book and have discovered a new set of taste-buds in my mouth along with a new hobby of reading restaurant reviews on the NY Times and Washington Post websites.

I hope your Thanksgiving was a filling and delicious one!  XOXO-K

  1. Wow, I didn’t know there was going to be a movie. That’s so cool! I can just imagine it.. it could be very funny! In your dream cast, who would play Ruth? I think Julia Roberts could be awesome..

  2. My dream cast (cool idea by the way) would be hmmmm….. Amanda Peet as Ruth could be good and Julia would be great too. An actress who can be disguised easliy and transformed into a completely different look. Some are easier than others. I thought of Meg Ryan but I think she would be harder.

  3. That is always a great discussion stimulator in a book club when the conversation starts to lack…. “What else? Well, if they made a movie, who would play X?” Andie McDowell just popped into my head; must be the hair… Of course, Meryl Streep would have a cakewalk with it.

  4. I was thinking hair, too, when I thought of Julia Roberts. I think Meryl would be too old (Ruth’s little boy was 6, I think, at the beginning of the book) although I just love her.
