"Lemoine writes evocatively "

A former cookbook editor, Lemoine writes evocatively about food, showing its correlation to Margot’s sense of being nurtured. Brigitte whips up one amazing meal after another, whereas Margot eats sardines out of the can when alone, and her mother serves her past-its-date salad that clumps together “in fermented wads”.
