A former "New York Times" restaurant critic, editor in chief of "Gourmet," and the author of three bestselling memoirs, Ruth Reichl is a beloved cultural figure in the food world and beyond. "For You, Mom. Finally." is her openhearted investigation of the life of a woman she realizes she never really knew-her mother. Through letters and diaries-and a new afterword relating the wisdom she's gained after sharing her story-Reichl confronts the transition her mother made from a hopeful young woman to an increasingly unhappy older one and recognizes the huge sacrifices made to ensure that her daughter's life would not be as disappointing as her own.
