My pal Jo Diaz ran another contest, and yes, I won! Her granddaughter pulled my name out of the hat, the last name of six winners of a copy of a book that Jo recently reviewed on her site, WineBlog.Org. So what’s the book and why do I want to read it?
According to Jo’s post which reviews the book, Kathryn Borel is an important new author, who recounts a road trip in France with her dad in Corked, a memoir “that’s filled with love, pain, and emotional growth through pushing the envelope.”
Jo says, “Her style of writing is very easy, raw, and revealing as she and her father Phillipe Borel ~ a retired hotelier and former chef ~ drive themselves through Alsace, Burgundy, Cotes du Rhone, and the Languedoc.” She continues later in her review that, “The book is filled with little revelations, and we’re all included in their journey, from solving all of the things that can, and sometimes do, go wrong between a daughter and a father.”
