Well, there was precious little food in here – certainly no recipes like in “The Feast Nearby”. Kimball still writes as if for a magazine audience and at least she isn’t shy of writing about her failings (especially emotionally) but there were many times I just wanted to shut the book and move on. I do think that I would have been better to leave a decent gap between Feast and Dirty – more because I enjoyed Feast so much – so that’s my take-away lesson. Leave gaps!
However she does describe the characters beautifully and I really did enjoy that aspect of the book. 2 stars from me.
