About the author
Top reviews from other countries
What used to be an enjoyable read about food and food traditions is now just another collection of politically motivated essays usually about how the rich are evil, the American dream is dead, white people are bad, etc. etc.
If I wanted this type of biased journalism I would listen to NPR, read the New York Slimes or watch Morning Joke.
Liberals have ruined The Best American series. Count me out!
But I opened up this collection and read her introduction. Then I looked over the table of contents. This isn't about food. It's about politics, which happen to be marginally related to food. When pieces are chosen on the basis of the writer's sex, race, or orientation, and not on the value or interest of food or wine or fine dining, then you've lost me. The pieces, according to her own admission, were chosen first on the basis of the identity of the writer, not the quality of the content. Straight, white men need not apply. That's racist, sexist. That's crap.
Last year's collection, edited by Ruth Reichl, was no different. A recent Travel Writing anthology - same thing. I suspect the entire "Best ____ Writing of 20_" series has gone off the woke cliff. I'm done with all of them.
