The Wine Lover's Daughter

The Wine Lover’s Daughter by Anne Fadiman is a gem, a beautifully written and heartfelt memoir of her famous father Clifton Fadiman. He was a brilliant, erudite raconteur, radio personality, and writer who was a devoted father, loved his wine and had a stellar way with words. He was an avid collector whose enthusiasms occasionally got the better of him. It is a treat to immerse yourself in this family tribute to writers and intellectuals. Clifton Fadiman had his demons, principally his belief that being Jewish was negative, but his humor and brilliance served him and his family well.
