One of my favorite books of 2015 was Jessica Fechtor’s Stir. It is memoir-with-recipes that tells of her brain aneurism at the age of 28, and her grueling but successful recuperation. An avid cook and joyful eater prior to the aneurism, the book is the story of her recovery and the ways in which food brought her back to herself as her wounded brain and body healed.
I read the book in just a day and half last summer, and mentioned it briefly on the blog last fall. Today, the paperback version of Stir came out (complete with a pretty new cover featuring the author!) and when I was offered a chance to give away a copy of that edition, I said yes immediately. After all, I’m always delighted to have a chance to shine a light on work that I love.
