In a charming, bittersweet memoir of growing up in the Bronx during the Depression, America's Queen of Suspense shares her recollections of her father's death in 1939, her family's financial woes, and her mother's creation of a rooming house, bringing in a colorful assortment of tenants who will change the lives of the Higgins clan. Reprint. 100,000 first printing.
"Kitchen Privileges" is a book that I feel as though I have been writing ever since I was twelve years old.
In these pages, I've tried to show how my mother's belief in me kept alive my dream to be a writer. My father's early death left her with three young children to support. A generation later my husband's early death left me in exactly that position except that I had five children.
Mother supported us by renting rooms, allowing our paying guests to have the privilege of preparing light meals in the kitchen. I supported my family by writing radio shows. Very early in the morning I put my typewriter on the kitchen table before I went to work in Manhattan and spent a few privileged and priceless hours working on my first novel.
I have found that dreams do come true, and I hope that anyone reading this book may feel encouraged to follow his or her own dreams even when the odds against achieving them seem great."
