review: keeping the feast by paula butturini

Paula Butturini's memoir starts strong with the twin acts of violence carried out against her and her now-husband as they worked as journalists overseas, but then lags as Butturini begins documenting the depression her mother went through and the depression her husband also suffered after his shooting. Despite all the time she spends writing about depression, Butturini never goes beyond the superficial and only gets deep when writing about food which she tries to make relate to the events of her life.
