I didn't think it was going to be this hard to read reviews. I know there are going to be some people who will hate the book and some who will love it. But the April issue of Wine & Spirits magazine included editor and publisher Joshua Greene's take on my book. And I kind of panicked. For the first forty-eight hours the actual letters looked like hieroglyphics then after coffee and the NYTimes this morning the words looked more coherent and when the coffee burned off the fog, I was stunned. I felt the way I did the first time I saw a play of mine read and the actors understood what I had written. Mr. Greene understood. He got it. I was so happy. He got the irony, he got the humor and of course, he got the wine stuff. I didn't even flinch when he described me as having "a train of frizzy red hair," and I was moved to hear his last lines: ...like Lynch (Kermit), Feiring's storytelling muscle takes the book beyond the neat genres established in the trade. This is a great read, a great perspective on the movement for natural winemaking and it's funny. The April issue is their restaurant one. Inside you'll also read writings from a satisfying packet of word slingers. From Tara Thomas' Chatreuse story to Field Maloney's pinot radicals, I couldn't ask for better company.
