SUMMARY
In this beautifully written, vividly rendered memoir, John Haney, Gourmet magazine's copy chief, describes his family's day-to-day struggles, from the twilight of Queen Victoria's reign to the dawn of the third millennium, in London's least affluent working-class enclaves and suburbs, including a place called the Isle of Dogs-and reflects on how his family's affection for the past and the food they loved kept them together. In crossing the Atlantic-and with it the class barrier-John is left with deep feelings of displacement and nostalgia for his Cockney roots. As he eats in some of New York City's most expensive restaurants, he tries (and fails) to reconcile his new appetites with the indelible tastes of his youth-and the long-ago life that has continued to, and always will, define him. Peopled with unforgettable characters who find in even the greasiest kitchens the sustenance to see them through life's hardships, Fair Shares for All is a remarkable memoir of resolve and resilience, food and family.
