In Memory of Bread
Paul Graham's book is a memoir about his journey with celiac's disease. It's a candid and rather honest telling of some of the hardships of having such a disease. Graham talks about the withdrawals he went through, craving certain foods that contain gluten, trials and errors of buying gluten-free foods, the cost of gluten-free foods, feeling the lost of being able to eat wheat. I can't imagine what it must be like to have celiac's disease. To not be able to go to any restaurant or stores or bakeries to buy food, to have to home make so many of what you eat, to go over to friend's house and have to bring your own food and drinks. I thought this book was rather interesting and was a quick read. If you love bread (gluten-free or not) or would like to learn more about wheat and a little of its history, I would recommend this book.
