If you’re like many Mad Men fans we know, you miss Salvatore Romano, Sterling Cooper’s erstwhile art director, whose repressed sexuality was beautifully portrayed by New Orleans native Bryan Batt. In this deft, heart-warming memoir and tribute to his unforgettably eccentric mother, She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Mother, Batt takes us from his colorful 1960s New Orleans childhood through his early acting days in New York and his star turn on Mad Men. Batt’s keen eye for the telling detail and light touch make for a memorable read. And we love the references to 60s food
