SF Edition, The Wine Lover’s Daughter (No. 57)

The Wine Loving Father might be more apt title for this affectionate but clear-eyed memoir in which the American writer Anne Fadiman remembers her convivial and amusing father Clifton Fadiman, successful author, critic, columnist, publisher and MC of the popular NBC radio quiz show Information Please. A complicated self-made Jew from Brooklyn with a passion for wine, Clifton moved in the best literary circles and was heaped with honours by the time he died in 1998, but never felt he was quite good enough. Not just a book for wine buffs, but one that evokes the atmosphere of a whole era in American life.
