Keeping the Feast recounts the grave gunshot injury to her husband, New York Times bureau chief John Tagliabue, who had been covering the Romanian uprising in 1989. Married just a short while, the couple shared a strong love of Italy, and so they settled in Rome while he recuperated. The author describes her evolving ideas about her husband's process of recovery and how sharing daily food was a sustenance to both their bodies and their marriage. The library has a copy of the book available for check out, as well.
