Eating Chocolates and Dancing in the Kitchen is a unique and delightful collection of personal stories of married life from a male point of view. Plummer's sketches, which are often humorous and sometimes poignant, show us that married life is a dance -- sometimes cheek to cheek, sometimes at arm's length -- a complicated series of steps, twists and dips in which two people somehow learn to move in harmony. It's the little things, like serving chocolate chip cookies for Sunday dinner or fighting fully dressed in the bathtub, that wake us up years later moaning and laughing about the hullabaloo of our married lives. Such details assume vivid and whimsical proportions in this lively narrative introduced by Tom's wife of thirty years, Louise Plummer. Certain to keep readers laughing even as they are nodding over the truth of the portrayals, there are glimpses of oneself or someone you know around every turn.
