Hungry by Darlene Barnes was an unusual book for me. It's written by a feisty woman who was the cook at a Fraternity House for several years.
Early in the book, I wasn't sure it was good enough to post about but all that changed. I ended up being really touched several times. And there are also a few good recipes in the book – no food pics though.
As a non-American I knew next to nothing about the fraternity/sorority system so that was interesting to me in itself.
The other reason I decided to tell you about the book is that it developed as an offshoot of a blog Darlene did about her experiences. (BTW is Darlene a common US name? It makes me think of the Aussie soap Neighbours for some reason)
I'm glad I read this even though I can't honestly say it was the best book of the year so far!
