The author's memoir (written at the ripe old age of 23!) provides an insider's view of an unusual world. Will Collyer's boyishly friendly narration transports listeners to exclusive kitchens populated with celebrity chefs, and a shady foodie underworld that supplies them with the world's most expensive fungus. The son of an Indian immigrant father and a Texan mother, Purkayastha began foraging for wild mushrooms with relatives in the Ozarks. Collyer sounds disarmingly youthful and peppy as he spins the author's eccentric tale of an unusual (sometimes lonely) childhood and his journey from kid-entrepreneur to teen dealer peddling truffles and other delicacies to high-end New York City restaurants. This deliciously satisfying blend of coming-of-age story, food fest, and entrepreneurial motivational guide will fascinate, impress, and educate listeners.
