Event date:

Featured Book: 
Love Later On

ONLINE--

Love Later On is a short colorful amusing book about how romance can work later in life. I never thought I'd marry again. I traveled the world and was a fulfilled woman on my own, and then, of course, I met him. It's a hopeful sophisticated tale of two 60-somethings from disparate backgrounds falling in love.

 

AUTHOR: Peggy Knickerbocker, a native San Franciscan, and daughter of a drama critic and a political activist, had a long and charmed career in the world of food. She taught cooking, ran a catering business in the 1970’s and co-owned, with her childhood friend, Flicka McGurrin, two colorful restaurants, one still thrives on the waterfront with McGurrin as sole owner. In 1989 she left the business to write about food.

 

At first she wrote steadily for magazines such as Saveur, Food and Wine and Gourmet and then went on to write four cookbooks, the last won a James Beard Award. She’d eaten her way through every continent by the time she was done writing about food.

 

Along the way, Knickerbocker had the greatest friends and a fascinating life, including years in Paris. She’d wrestled most of her demons to the mat, but with men, she’d faltered. After an early divorce and one or two good relationships, she repeatedly under-served herself with her choices.

 

BARBARA LANE is the books columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle and director of events at Copperfield's Books.
