Reviews

Praise for Mark Kurlansky

"Mark Kurlansky's fiction provides the same pleasures we have come to expect from his nonfiction. It's beautifully written, observant, and acutely intelligent." - Francine Prose

"Richly imagined stories."
-O, the Oprah Magazine

"Brilliant... Journalistic skills might be part of a writer's survival kit, but they infrequently prove to be the foundation for literary success, as they have here. .... Kurlansky has a wonderful ear for the syntax and rhythm of the vernacular... For all the seriousness of Kurlansky's cultural entanglements, it is nevertheless a delight to experience his sophisticated sense of play and, at times, his outright wicked sense of humor."
-The New York Times Book Review

"For those of us who love both stories and food, this book is a delectable feast. Mark Kurlansky's sixteen-part novel is like a long, wonderful meal with friends. It is nurturing, succulent, and most of all, a lot of fun."
- Edwidge Danticat, author of Brother, I'm Dying and Claire of the Sea Light

"Kurlansky powerfully demonstrates the defining role food plays in history and culture."
-Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Kurlansky continues to prove himself remarkably adept as taking a most unlikely candidate and telling its tale with epic grandeur."
-Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Kurlansky has a keen eye for odd facts and natural detail."
-Wall Street Journal
