This review is from: Scribble, Scribble, Scribble: Writing on Ice Cream, Obama, Churchill and My Mother (Paperback)
This will read somewhat oddly; I've bought this as a birthday gift for my husband, whose birthday isn't for some weeks yet, so I haven't had his opinions and therefore can't review it properly. However, I've never been disappointed in a Simon Schama yet - overwhelmed by his intellect, yes - and this seems to be no different. plus the service was great.
OK. I've now re-visited this review, having whipped the book out of my husband's protesting hands. I enjoyed the chapters on food enormously, and spouse loved the serious history. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants an interesting and well-written book which can be dipped into time and time again.
