A treat for your mind: The Art of Forgetting

by SARA on June 9, 2011

Dear readers, I’m thrilled to be blogging about something completely unrelated to food, but very, very connected to this site. The Art of Forgetting, my dear friend and co-blogger Camille Noe-Pagan’s thoughtful and beautifully-wrought debut novel, goes on sale today. Camille’s woven together a powerful story of friendship, and she traces its essences–joys and sorrows–with such a sure hand that, to me, the experience of reading it felt thrillingly familiar. From the first sentence to the last word, I couldn’t put it down (and I’ve picked it up again more than once).

Needless to say, I wasn’t surprised when the critics at Library Journal wrote this: “This page-turner with original, likable, empathetic characters and an identifiable theme will attract readers who enjoy intelligent novels about women’s friendships.”

Nor when (true story), yesterday I picked up the American Airlines in-flight magazine on my JFK-LAX flight to see yet another rave. These high praises are beyond well-deserved (and, my intuitive powers tell me, just the beginning). I can’t urge you strongly enough to pick up a copy and see for yourself. Camille, congratulations on your lovely, lovely story!
