Several of the essays breathe new life into the time-honored theme of family#151;Louise DeSalvo honors her grandfather, nick-named the drunk because he spent his life of hard work drinking wine instead of water, and James Vescovi portrays the close of the stormy relationship between his father and grandmother.

And elsewhere, Stephanie Susnjara charts the history of garlic in society and her kitchen, and Gina Barreca offers an unabashed confession of congenital jealousy.BRBRLee Gutkind, founding editor of ICreative Nonfiction, the nations premier nonfiction prose literary journal, and Joanna Clapps Herman have brought together artful essays by novelists, scholars, critics, and memoirists from across the country.
