Maslin Picks Fruit!

Jul 07, 2008

New York Times Daily Book Critic Janet Maslin picks “The Fruit Hunters” as a top summer read on CBS Sunday Morning News.

Here’s what she wrote:
“Colorful, oddball nonfiction about some of the weirdest stuff that ever grew on trees or bushes. Yes, there is a fruit that smells like skunk. Yes, there’s a grape-flavored apple. The author describes bringing a mangosteen to a party and using it as a conversation piece. The factoids in his book will be used in the same way.”

That’s not the only summer reading list that’s getting fruity. Turn Row Books — “Rhythm and Books From the Margins of the MIssissippi Delta” — recently selected “The Fruit Hunters” to be part of the Chef’s Library Culinary Book-Club. Of the book, they said:

“This is a triumph of journalistic investigation, fine writing, good humor and a subject so enormous yet so overlooked in our day-to-day lives… We could go on and on reveling in the general fun and fruitiness of this book…”

And The Fruit Hunters is also a New York Times “Editor’s Choice.”

They call it “a lustrous and exhilarating paean to the overwhelming diversity of fruits on this planet, both botanical and human.”
