World of Piesby Karen Stolz
Synopses & Reviews
Finally in paperback! In this remarkable debut work from author Karen Stolz, readers follow the arc of a girl's life as she grows to womanhood. From crushes to surprise baby sisters to nail polish to a devastating death, Roxanne is our guide through a life that has moments of tenderness, poignancy, sorrow, and great humor, as well as some wonderful baking memories. A sumptuous novel--though like the best pie, tart in all the right places.
Stolz creates a poignant and exquisitely written episodic tale of family food and love set in a small Texas town in the 1960s. Reminiscent of "Like Water for Chocolate" and "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe", this enchanting and poignant first novel brings together a unique mix of ingredients: 1 cup love, 2 teaspoons compassion, and 3 tablespoons comedy.
