The New York Times critic Dwight Garner is so smitten with Day of Honey by Annia Ciezadlo that he ends up quoting several of the “sensual, smart, wired-up” sentences from the book and says he “could fill the rest of this space with the [book’s] resonant lines.”

Libraries have ordered modest quantities of this memoir about living in the Middle East and particularly about the region’s food.

Garner says to not be put off by the book’s “feeble cover…[that] looks like the cover of some mediocre nonprofit group’s annual report, or of Guideposts magazine.”

Not everyone would agree.

    Hey, that’s a fine cover. My immediate reaction was a warm fuzzy for the kid who looks adorable without being cutesy. Reminds me of some of my Sardinian cousins.
