    Not even sure how to categorize this book Maybe, short stories connected by food It s an interesting concept Especially for foodies , but was too complex for my style of reading and enjoyment Halfway through the book I realized the stories were actually connected, but by then I had given up I was just rushing to finish it in time for a book group discussion However, I did have to chuckle at this interesting perspective from a five year old girlThere were only two left a sickly lookin Not...

    As a foodie, I thought I would love this Maybe this book would bridge the gap and make me enjoy short stories It didn t happen The first one, I just didn t get A man finds himself with his foot in a hole of water with no memory.

    I think that a rating of decent is just about perfect for Edible Stories I liked it while I was reading it, but it definitely did not leave as much of an impact on me, and I doubt I will ever pick it up to read again I, like many other reviews, was disappointed overall, but just simply because I fee...

    Library Journal Review Best known for his nonfiction works Cod Salt , Kurlansky rarely dabbles in pure fiction His last work of fiction, Boogaloo on 2nd Avenue A Novel of Pastry, Guilt, and Music, was an ambitious effort focused on the intersections of culture, love, and, of course, food A similar concept is applied in this work, with a focus on food as the thread that ties humanity together Though this book is presented as a novel, the main story is hidden within a gumbo of 16 different v Library Journal Review Best known for his nonfiction works Cod Salt , Kurlansky rarely dabbles in pure fiction His last work of fiction, Boogaloo on 2nd Avenue A Novel of Pastry, Guilt, and Music, was an ambitious effort focused on the intersections of culture, love, and, of course, food A similar concept is applied in this work, ...

    As a fan of Kurlansky s non fiction, I was very pleased to find this book, my first experience of his fictional work, in the clearance section of Half Price Books Needless to say, less than twenty four hours later, I have finished the book and am very pleased with what I read Each chapter, a short story, is connected to the other chapters by one fine string The relationship with the characters and the food after which each chapter is titled is refreshingly creative including the title of t As a fan of Kurlansky s non fiction, I was very pleased to find this book, my first experience of his fictional work, in the clearance section of Half Price Books Needless to say, less than twenty four hours later, I have finished the book and am very pleased with what I read Each chapter, a short story, is connected to the other chapters by one fine string The relationship with the characters and the food after which each chapter is titled is re...

    I am not a short story reader, but I was fascinated by this collection of 16 stories that I stumbled across in the library last week The author carefully crafts 16 entirely unique stories, but each one has a character or prop or location that carries over into each other story However, you have to pay very close attention to catch some of the connections The individual stories are beautifully written considering they span such a wide range of topics and settings, and the collection is pieced I am not a short story reader, but I was fascinated by this collection of 16 stories that I stumbled across in the library last week The author carefully crafts 16 entirely unique stories, but each one has a character or prop or location that carries over into each other story However, you have to pay very close attention to catch some of the connections The individual s...
