As usual I schlepped 50 minutes to borrow the library’s copy of Eye, only to discover it was a “Food Special Issue,” hence bereft of any novelty or interest whatsoever.

No review. Eye is a fraud.

I did, however, note that Louise Fili gets star treatment in this issue, in an echt-Eye hagiographic profile that only once mentions she is Steven Heller’s wife.
