Paul Pollinger reading Kim Firestone's memoir
This is the kind of picture an author has to love. I helped my friend Kim Firestone get his book in shape for publication, got it nicely designed by my Argentine friends at My Special Book (especially Juan Zemborain), took it along to a weekend at the Bay, and smiled as I watched my friend Paul Pollinger get absorbed in the story -- of how an heir to the Firestone Tire company made his way from a life of privilege to a life of satisfaction.

The book is for sale on Amazon: Reflections on a Silver Spoon: How a Foodie Found Home
