Nigella Lawson by Gilly Smith

Summary:

The author gives background on Ms. Lawson’s parents, walks us through her childhood and youth, before hop-scotching around her early adult years, and briefly touching on what her life has been like in the 2000s. Focuses a lot on her books and the TV shows.

Opinion:

I was really disappointed with this book. Maybe because I didn’t learn anything new about her. Throughout the book, both Nigella and her friends repeatedly say that “what you see, is what you get with her.” Maybe I’m being biased because in studying Martha Steward, I learned a lot of gossip and sordid details. Oh, well. I still love her (Nigella’s) cookbooks and cannot wait until I’ve collected them all!
