"For a woman who thinks of herself as a New Yorker at this point, I buy a lot of clothes from companies named things like Shrimp & Grits. Why? Because identity is complicated."
Elizabeth Passarella is content with being complicated. She grew up in Memphis in a conservative, Republican family with a Christian mom and a Jewish dad. Then she moved to New York, fell in love with the cityand, eventually, her husbandand changed. Sort of. While her politics have tilted to the left, she still puts her faith firstand argues that the two can go hand in hand, for what its worth.
In this sharp and slyly profound memoir, Elizabeth shares stories about everything from conceiving a baby in an unair-conditioned garage in Florida to finding a rat in her bedroom. She upends stereotypes about Southerners, New Yorkers, and Christians, making a case that we are all flawed humans simply doing our best. Good Apple is a hilarious, welcome celebration of the absurdity, chaos, and strange sacredness of life that brings us all together, whether we have city lights or starry skies in our eyes. More importantly, its about the God who pursues each of us, no matter our own inconsistencies or failures, and shows us the way back home.
Elizabeth Passarella is a singular voice--a smart, hilarious New Yorker with deep Southern roots. Her essays range from profound to absurd to hopeful, but they always make the reader laugh, cry, and feel less alone. She has spent more than twenty years as a writer and editor in New York, with positions at InStyle, Vogue, and Real Simple. Elizabeth is currently a contributing editor at Southern Living and continues to freelance for many national publications. She has written about food, home design, parenting, and faith, as well as humor columns and personal essays for outlets including The New York Times, Parents, Martha Stewart Weddings, Coastal Living, and Airbnb Magazine. Elizabeth's voice is that of the wry best friend you wish you had, a mix of Anne Lamott, Nora Ephron, and Mary Laura Philpott.
