L'appart by David Lebovitz (Early Review)


Despite suffering while reading about this nightmare apartment renovation when my own kitchen redo was to start in just a few days, I really enjoyed reading this memoir. The beginning is a much more enjoyable read than later pages; he touches on his moving from Paris to San Francisco and shares humorous (and personal) stories of doing his best to integrate with Parisian culture. It has a more personal slant than his other food-based books, but there is still plenty of kitchen talk and recipes. I felt like laughing and crying with him throughout the ups and downs with contractors and electricians, but mostly crying. I cannot believe he went through what he did and is still here to share the story. Okay, that may be a bit dramatic, but it is a wonder that he's still living in Paris.

L'appart will be out on November 7th, 2017. Check here to see if he's coming to your area for his book tour.

5/5 Stars

I was given a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
