"Lynch's life story struck me as a culinary take on A Tree Grows
in Brooklyn; a poignant tale of rough streets and poverty
navigated by a bright, sensitive child who never outgrew her love
for the place that made her tough, tender and fearless."--Kathleen

"Barbara's debut memoir is a funny but frank read that captures the fierce drive required to overcome challenges and triumph over adversities. Out of Line will serve as inspiration for young cooks to seasoned kitchen vets and everyone in between. A must read!"--Eric Ripert, chef and author of 32 Yolks
"Lynch's love of food and hard scrabble Southie upbringing are blended into a rich and engaging narrative that sheds light on the different influences that helped shape her career. The narrative is evocative of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential...Foodies will enjoy the vivid language used to describe Lynch's food exploits, and old neighbors will be treated to a trip around south Boston through the eyes of a local."--Library Journal
