"You'll savor every bite." --Petra Mayer, NPR "A great beach read that doesn't sacrifice beautiful writing...Oh, Hannah! What a character she is--sexy, hilarious, tough, and with such heart." --Julie Powell, author of Julie and Julia "Original and exquisite...Salty, smart, and sensuous. Eli Brown unfurls a pirate story that's also an eloquent disquisition on human appetite and the mysteries of taste." --Carolyn Cooke, author of Daughters of the Revolution "A swashbuckler of a cookbook, and a romance, too." --BonAppetit.com "Accomplished and enormously powerful." --The Philadelphia Inquirer on The Great Days "With lyrical, confident prose, Brown makes August's dark journey a harrowing, convincing look into the heart of cult life that should linger with readers." --Publishers Weekly on The Great Days
