Allegra GoodmanThe Cookbook Collector

Heralded as “a modern day Jane Austen” by USA Today, National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author Allegra Goodman has compelled and delighted hundreds of thousands of readers. Goodman reads from and discusses her eagerly anticipated new novel The Cookbook Collector, in which she weaves together the worlds of Silicon Valley and rare book collecting in a delicious novel about appetite, temptation, and fulfillment. Bicoastal, surprising, rich in ideas and characters, The Cookbook Collector is a novel about getting and spending, and about the substitutions we make when we can’t find what we’re looking for: reading cookbooks instead of cooking, speculating instead of creating, collecting instead of living. But above all it is about holding on to what is real in a virtual world: love that stays.

($25.00) Dial Press ISBN #978-0-385-34085-4. You can visit Allegra Goodman’s official web site as well.
