Heartburn, Bread Pudding and October Books.

Nora Ephron‘s Heartburn made me laugh and made me cook. I built my October Cooking the Books column around her recipe for bread pudding. Read more by clicking here. Trust me, this one is worth it.Nora Ephron's Heartburn. Bread Pudding.

I get a particular satisfaction out of reading books in the appropriate season and it is all the sweeter when I can match reading material to the month at hand. Am I alone?

The Hunt For Red October. Tom Clancy

I compiled a list of October books, strictly those which have October in the title. You can read that by clicking here.

I would write more for you but I’ve used up all my time on France (that sounds better if you sing it to the tune of This Charming Man); 9,000 words –I’ve made it to Midday on Saturday. I can’t stop now, I’m committed to it.

  1. I enjoyed Heartburn as well – read after my divorce, when I finally got reading again! But then I have read so much about divorce lately (and just written a book about it) that I feel I should turn my attention to something else at last. Otherwise I would be tempted to re-watch the movie!

  2. I remember liking the movie too, but I imagine I would watch with more feeling and possibly laugh like a drain more, second time around!

    My book (since you ask) is intended as a warm, supportive guide. It’s called ‘Making Peace with Divorce’ and launches later this month. I was asked to write it, on the basis of my blog, or I would never have had the nerve.

    I have made peace with my own divorce, but the repercussions do rumble on. Not of divorce itself, but the painful fall-out with children etc because of the behaviour of my ex. Not a simple case of falling out of love and going separate ways, but lies and stealing, bankruptcy and so on…
