Dear Librarians,

You have stacks of cookbooks, but you haven't got one like this. THE DEAD CELEBRITY COOKBOOK: A RESURRECTION OF RECIPES FROM MORE THAN 145 STARS OF STAGE AND SCREEN dusts off such culinary gems as Joan Crawford's poached salmon, Farrah Fawcett's Sausage and Peppers, and Rock Hudson's cannoli, and serves them up with a side-order of smart pop culture commentary. The book is not just an ode to vintage cookery, but also an homage to some of the greatest stars of classic television, beloved films, and Broadway, and a viewing guide to boot.

I've been a New York Times columnist, a memoirist who one critic said "opened the door for David Sedaris," and the flamboyant movie critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In THE DEAD CELEBRITY COOKBOOK, I tell readers what to cook and, more importantly, what to watch while they're enjoying the fruits — or fish or fowl — of their culinary labors. I hope you'll recommend that they grab a fork and dig in!
