Ruth Reichl is on Bed Rest with Twitter

Ruth Reichl hasn’t given many interviews since Gourmet closed.

Ms. Reichl did, however, answer a few questions about her Twitter account for Nick Axelrod at Women’s Wear Daily.

“I have to say that Twitter can be a real distraction if you’re trying to work, but when you’re stuck in bed, it’s great. You feel connected to the world,” Ms. Reichl said.

The former editor has been stuck in bed after a bone graft to repair a foot that she broke during her recent book tour.

Ms. Reichl’s tweets are often about the weather and what she’s eating.

This morning around 9:30 she wroteScrambled weather. Lightening forecast. Earthbound way to start the day: buttered oatmeal, fresh berries, river of thick cream. So soothed.”
