I am British and American and grew up in Munich, and then came to the States as an adult–making a point of never quite fitting in.  By profession, I am an administrator and operations type (with an emphasis on food and the environment), but I am interested in everything.  I’m not interested in everything in every respect, but I don’t believe there’s such a thing as a fundamentally uninteresting topic*, any more than I think that there’s a fundamentally uninteresting person.  So I read a lot, and have recently started writing book reviews.  They are collected here, along with anything else I decide to write.  Food is one of my major preoccupations, so it will probably creep in here and there.

*Example: American football.  Do I want to see a game?  No.  Emphatically not. But I liked the book The Stronger Women get, the More Men Love Football and the film Any Given Sunday, the history of the huddle is interesting, and I of course loved the articles on football in the New Yorker.

  1. I read your profile on Amazon and thought you might be interested in reading my memoir, The Night Sky: A Journey from Dachau to Denver and Back. It’s about my 43-year search for my biological father who disappeared shortly after my birth in war-torn Germany. As I take the reader on my journey between the past and the present in Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Russia, and my association with a former KGB agent to solve a decades-long mystery, I learn the family secrets of untold heroism, quiet courage, and a mother’s love; and of tragedy, disillusionment and heartbreak. At the end of my long journey, I uncover a shattering and painful truth. But the secret, however heartbreaking, would also become the greatest gift I would receive.

    If you’re interested, search for “Maria Sutton” in Amazon.com. Thanks!
