Book Giveaway: Corked by Kathryn Borel (Ends 3/14) CLOSED

Sunday, February 28, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Today, I have a new memoir for you! Thanks to Hachette Book Group, another book giveaway - this time, it's Corked by Kathryn Borel. I am reading it right now, and can tell you it's about a father and daughter on a trip of picturesque French wineries, trying to get closer and know each other better. Stay tuned for my forthcoming review!

Book Description 
Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she's totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him.

About the Author
Kathryn Borel was born in 1979 in Toronto, the daughter of a hotelier.

After several years, she became the older sister to Nico, who was named after the family cat. She spent her early years living in hotels in Paris, Bermuda, Dallas, and New Jersey, finally settling in Quebec City.

In 2002 she moved to Toronto to follow a man. The relationship ended.

She continues to live in Toronto where she works at the Canadian Broadcasting Company. She has written food and wine reviews for radio and print. Her journalism includes a column which ran in the National Post under the title "Indignities." Corked is her first book.

    My favorite genre is mysteries, but I like to read most genres.

    I do enjoy good wine but I'm far from educated about it!
