From award-winning author Diana Abu-Jaber, Life Without a Recipe: A Memoir (W.W. Norton & Company; April 18, 2016) is a big-hearted story about finding your way when everyone else has their own prescriptions, their own “recipes,” for what your life should be like. In her new memoir about family, food, and motherhood, Abu-Jaber describes what it was like growing up with outspoken relatives who lovingly pestered her with “advice” and how she spent years learning to ignore the script and instead improvise to find her true self and the life she desired. Life Without a Recipe tells a universal story about forging one’s own path while remaining deeply connected to the friends and family members who may have driven you a little crazy along the way.
