The Wine Lover’s Daughter reading

Anne Fadiman didn’t inherit a love of wine from her father, Clifton—but she does appear to have the same fondness for the written word. She chronicles her relationship with the storied literary critic, radio personality and editor in her memoir, The Wine Lover’s Daughter. Raised in a lower-middle class Jewish home in Brooklyn, Clifton Fadiman became infatuated with wine—beginning with his first glass of Graves in Paris—to escape his upbringing. Fadiman examines class, family and her father’s hedonism through the vintages he loved so passionately with criticism and, ultimately, tenderness.
