Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Revenge is sweet. Reinventing yourself after getting knocked down by a cheating husband and creating a whole new life filled with recipes, an imaginary guru, and a food column is even sweeter. Loved the whole book.” Cathy Lamb, author of If You Could See What I See
“Food and love and loss and resilience—and a terrific narrative playfulness—are Hawley’s recipe for a slyly entertaining and heartening novel.” Daniel Menaker, author of The Treatment and former New Yorker editor, magazine writer, and book publisher
