Book Image Did Not Load!Longtime journalist and award-winning writer Christy Potter has compiled some of her recent work into "The World is My Oyster But I Didn't Know How to Cook." It includes humorous and thought-provoking essays on New York (where she lives and wishes she was from), Kansas (where she's actually from), childhood, books, infertility, good days, bad days, and life in general, as well as interviews she's done with well-known writers like Janet Evanovich, Lois Lowry and P.F. Kluge. There are also a couple of short stories and a weird poem or two tossed in, just for a little variety.
 
As a Midwesterner who moved to the New York City metro area almost 20 years ago, Christy has an interesting perspective on life, as a creative writer, a career-long journalist, and a “displaced hayseed” whose love of talking to people is second only to her love of writing. All of that comes through in this book, a diverse collection of the style and voice her longtime readers have come to know and love.
