IT IS NOT A COOKBOOK   7 comments

Just in case the title is misleading, “Figs & Pomegranates & Special Cheeses” is not a cookbook, just as “Mrs. Job” was not a self-help book showing married women how to get paid employment.

Here’s the source of the title, – a quote from page 50 when Dara’s mom is talking to Dara about her upcoming marriage to Job.

“Oh Dara, I did feel that way about your father when we first married,

but love changes over time. I guess you could say at first it is like

feasting on figs and pomegranates and special cheeses,

and later it is like enjoying the evening potage. The thrill may not be

so great later on, but each day it fills the empty hole that would be hunger

if you did not have each other.”
