It is a story of immigrants, Jewish gangsters, and Brooklyn; of sugar, saccharine, obesity, and diet crazes; of jealousy, betrayal, and ambition. Disinherited along with his mother and siblings, Rich Cohen has written a rancorous, colorful history of his extraordinary family and their pursuit of the American Dream. ""A rollicking, utterly compelling family saga that is part detective story, part morality tale, part tragedy and part farce. It is a story peopled with eccentrics and naïfs and scoundrels, and a story recounted with uncommon acuity and wit... Mr. Cohen... writes about his family with a mixture of affection, outrage and bafflement, startled and often in awe at the strangeness of his relatives and the bizarre trajectory of their lives... He has not settled for writing a simple, straight-ahead memoir, however. Instead, he's intercut the story with tart and highly entertaining asides about everything from the history of Brooklyn to the history of the sugar business, from the legacy of the immigrant experience to the big business of diets and weight loss... [Cohen has] managed to turn his family's rancorous history into a gripping memoir: a small classic of familial triumph, travail and strife, and a telling—and often hilarious—parable about the pursuit and costs of the American Dream.""— Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times   ""Do not disinherit a man who makes his living with a pen. He may exact revenge by splashing the family's boils and foibles in black-and-white on the pages of a spectacularly entertaining book. That is the misfortune of the family of the late Benjamin Eisenstadt, self-made scion behind those ubiquitous pink packages of fake sugar piled in bowls on restaurant tabletops the world over. But it's a riotous reading experience for the rest of us, who get to enjoy Rich Cohen's roiling, boisterous, hysterical and weirdly scholarly remembrance of his messy, badly behaved Jewish clan in Sweet and Low.""— Michael Ollove, The Baltimore Sun   ""How decadent... to indulge in Rich Cohen's rollicking account of his family and the business it built, a book that aims mostly to settle old scores, air dirty laundry and answer decades of petty insults from relatives... He paints vividly, and not flatteringly... [Cohen] has a terrific eye for detail, the little things that affix people and places in our memories, the gestures and miscues that shape family history... Reading him savage his family, you sometimes wonder, is he allowed to do this? It's a guilty pleasure—sort of like sugar without the calories.""— Kate Zernike, The New York Times Book Review   ""A wildly addictive, high-octane narrative. Cohen sashays with boisterous panache from the history of the sugar trade to grandmother Betty's brooch... Cohen moves from journalistic objectivity to the intensely personal with ease, enjoying the kind of access that historians almost never get... Is Rich Cohen, the grandson who got squat from the Sweet'N Low millions, taking revenge? No; this book is about his mother, and the way that her family—the whole saccharine-sticky lot of them—were truly and unnaturally awful to her, a woman who makes but brief appearances in the narrative and is never eulogized. A woman who could have survived her vile relatives only through a tremendous inner strength. It is this strength which, subtly, gloriously, Rich Cohen celebrates.""— John Barlowe, Washington Post   ""The rollicking saga of Grandpa Ben's business, 'taken over and stripmined by hooligans.' The battle over his vast family fortune leads to feuds between siblings, corruption, lawsuits and the ultimate disintegration of the clan. It is Cohen's good fortune to be on the side of the family that was disinherited. Sweet revenge is the energy behind this glorious book.""— Andrea Sachs, Time   ""Alternately delicious and sour. . . All these characters are portrayed with elegantly phrased detail, along with Cohen's insightful eye for the larger picture. Sweet and Low might as well be a Balzacian 19th-century novel complete with a crisis, a contested will and a tragic resolution... Sweet and Low is never less than fascinating reading, both for what it says and what it doesn't. Hell hath no fury like a writer deprived.""— Melvin Bukiet, Los Angeles Times Book Review   "" Sweet and Low is a wondrous evocation of an era and character types that won't be seen again.""— Ron Grossman, Chicago Tribune   ""The book is not just about settling scores... Mr. Cohen aims higher, writing not only about his family but also about the first Jewish settlers in New York, the history of sugar, the dieting industry, the Food and Drug Administration and city politics, among other things. A contributing editor at Rolling Stone, he's made a career of writing books that mix nostalgia, cultural history and memoir. It's a tricky blend, but he manages it with clean, confident prose. He boils down his research into something spare, wistful and edgy... Mr. Cohen is an unusually nimble writer, capable of casually broaching grander themes. By balancing his more ambitious material with Eisenstadt family lore, and moving the drama away from the money he'll never see, he makes the story of Sweet'N Low something more than just a pleasant taste that lingers in the mouth.""— Emily Bobrow, The New York Observer   ""After half a century of testimony from the likes of Philip Roth and about as much in personal experience, I can only imagine how Tolstoy would have begun 'Anna Karenina' had he grown up in Brooklyn when I did: 'Most crazy families are alike,' he might have written. 'But each crazy Jewish family is meshuga in its own way.' Sweet and Low is Rich Cohen's unblinking account of one such family...

From Publishers Weekly: Zeidner's sprightly, intelligent and witty third novel (after Alexandra Freed ) confirms her talent. Set in an accurately evoked Philadelphia and covering a one-year span in the lives of lovers Malcolm De Witt and Nora Worth, it chronicles the vicissitudes of their relationship and at the same time paints a perceptive picture of life among downwardly mobile yuppies--those who are entitled to the designation by virtue of social class and education, but who earn too little money to live its lifestyle. Malcolm is a sporadically employed architectural designer who has already failed at other careers and seems fated "to take artistic escalators in the wrong direction. " Nora, who has abandoned her aspiration to be an artist, works as a TV food stylist and designs costumes for TV ads. The precarious state of his finances makes passive, reclusive Malcolm surly and unready for marriage, while perpetually hyper Nora nags him to tie the knot. As concern over money exacerbates their conflicts and perhaps indicates terminal incompatibility, Nora is tempted by a old flame and Malcolm yearns for the IRS agent who is investigating his failure to pay taxes. A mysterious $30, 000 that suddenly appears in Nora's bank account only adds to the tension. Zeidner has a keen eye for modern lifestyles, and her dialogue is sharp and true, especially when the lovers bicker. If her characters are sometimes too flaky to be entirely appealing, they are rendered with admirable fidelity. Quantity Available: 1.

With the aid of this book and the internet, you can plan your trip using over 1,000 links to sites belonging to hotels, restaurants, historical sites, museums, retail stores, galleries, spas, pueblos and special places just outside the city. This book was designed for the traveller who stays for a few days, a week or perhaps a little longer. It highlights everything to see in this centuries-old city and takes you to the places you are most likely to enjoy, the places that provide the most immediate contact with the rich history of one of the oldest cities in America, where three cultures interact separately and together to create a rich and unique cultural mosaic. The guide covers key travel information, a downtown walking tour, and diversions: from the famed Santa Fe Opera, to the unique Tesuque Pueblo Flea Market, to the legendary artist colony on Canyon Road. Also included are historical buildings and art galleries, museums, restaurants with a past, lodgings of historical value, shopping and spas, the countryside from Abiquiu to Taos, outdoor activities from hiking to skiing, the Pueblos, their feast days and casinos, places of worship, secret spots for taking those special pictures, and major yearly events and celebrations. World-renowned photographer Marcia Keegan lavishly illustrates every section with corresponding photographs. Internet links guide you to the actual web sites of the places covered, where you can learn a great deal before you even get to Santa Fe! If you will be pressed for time, you can also use the sites to help you decide before arrival which actual places you are most interested in spending your valuable time and money.220pp..
