The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman
The Cookbook Collector

The Cookbook Collector is a road trip into love of books...which come to life...and a snapshot of idiosyncratic characters, balancing the business of books with the human yearning for beauty, the love of story within and beyond the pages, a touch of whimsy, and a serious look at relationships (and honesty) between men and women and siblings and family, with a backdrop of the over-the-top economic/emotional era which defined the .com bubble and the "easy" invasion of personal privacy...spiced by Ms. Goodman's continuous look at the Jewish experience in America.
