Detailed item info

Synopsis
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. Now, in her most ambitious work yet, Goodman weaves together the worlds of Silicon Valley and rare book collecting in a delicious novel about appetite, temptation, and fulfillment. Emily and Jessamine Bach are opposites in every way: Twenty-eight-year-old Emily is the CEO of Veritech, twenty-three-year-old Jess is an environmental activist and graduate student in philosophy. Pragmatic Emily is making a fortune in Silicon Valley, romantic Jess works in an antiquarian bookstore. Emily is rational and driven, while Jess is dreamy and whimsical. Emily's boyfriend, Jonathan, is fantastically successful. Jess's boyfriends, not so much - as her employer George points out in what he hopes is a completely disinterested way. 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.

Reviews
"If any contemporary author deserves to wear the mantle of Jane Austen, it's [Allegra] Goodman, whose subtle, astute social comedies perfectly capture the quirks of human nature. This dazzling novel . . . is Goodman's most robust, fully realized and trenchantly meaningful work yet."-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

For shipments in the U.S., basic shipping is by USPS Media Mail, with Priority Mail shipping an option. I make an effort to pass on shipping discounts and do NOT add any handling charges. Combined shipping discounts apply when ordering more than one book.

Flat rate envelope rates are not available, with possible exceptions for small paperback books and ephemera. Buyer is responsible for any customs or additional charges.

Additional Comments:
I strive to include all condition issues in my description and would rather overstate problems than have you receive a book you're not happy with. Please consider the age and prior use of the book before purchasing, and if you have any questions or need more information, contact me and I will respond as quickly as possible.

When choosing books to sell, I look for First Editions, signed copies and unusual or interesting titles in nice condition. I pick up books I would be happy to have in my own library.
