Book Description: In a compelling novel that takes the reader on a strange journey from Indochina to Paris, the Vietnamese cook for Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas reveals his own fascinating story-Paris, 1934. Binh has accompanied his employers to the station for their departure to America. His own destination is unclear: will he go with his 'Mesdames', stay in France, or return to his native Vietnam? Binh fled his homeland in disgrace, leaving behind his malevolent charlatan of a father and his self-sacrificing mother. For five years, he has been the personal cook at the famous apartment on the rue de Fleurs. Binh is a lost soul, an exile and an alien, a man of musings, memories and possibly lies- Tastes, oceans, sweat, tears - The Book of Salt is a an inspired novel about food and exile, love and betrayal. : Review: "It is beautifully written, a cooking up of love and self to feed the devouring appetites of Gerturde Stein and Alice B. Toklas that is nothing less than a masterpiece of delicate and -naturally- existentialist hedonism."

Publishers Weekly ( July 13, 1992; 9780531059937 ) Barasch's winsome first picture book is an ambitious effort--a story within a story about two young rabbits. As Baby Gray is being tucked into bed, his mother reads him the story of Rodney Rabbit, a vegetable fancier who ``has tomatoes to juggle, a green pepper hula hoop to spin and a radish doll to hug.'' Sometimes Rodney reads a book about a rabbit named Baby Gray who shares with his family a passion for food--at a picnic, in fact, they assemble the same assortment of vegetables found in Rodney's room. Reading about the feast whets Rodney's appetite and, after devouring ``some beet cookies from his artichoke cookie jar,'' the story concludes with both bunnies snoozing in their respective beds. Barasch imbues this slight but sweet story with a quirky charm, though her rather flat watercolors feature characters who are virtually indistinguishable from one another. The common theme of the vegetables seems insufficient to draw the two tales together: little ones may well enjoy these bunnies, but children are apt to be as confused as they are entertained."--Publishers Weekly 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Barasch, Lynne. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Used., Orchard Books, 1992, Crown. 2001. Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. A crisp clean hardcover, no markings throughout, not an ex-lib: Parents struggling to find answers about their children often have to wade through pedantic and confusing mazes. Frequently, books about medical or developmental conditions offer little more than the author's personal story or a textbookish monotone. Refreshingly, these authors delve into the shady, often misunderstood world of pervasive developmental disorders, of which perhaps the most well-known is autism, with clarity, warmth and amazing depth, focusing on Asperger Syndrome (AS). The authors present unfamiliar terms and jargon with full explanations, and with none of the patronizing tone sometimes encountered in the medical world. The reader is not left with the personal story alone, and forced to go off on her own expedition for information. The authors (both mothers of AS children) effectively trace this disorder from the onset of symptoms through adulthood. While most parents may be tempted to skip straight to Chapter 2 to devour the list of telltale signs and apply them to their own child, they would do well to start at the beginning. The book grew out of the authors' OASIS Web site (Online Asperger Syndrome Information and Support), which has furthered AS research immeasurably (the site's response rates alone provide important information about potential numbers of people with AS). These authors have certainly done their homework. Besides invaluable practical information, parents and other interested persons will find comfort in the book's welcoming tone and the knowledge that they are not alone., Crown, 2001
