The Cookbook Collector - Allegra Goodman

THE COOKBOOK COLLECTOR (Dial, $26) is the incomparable Allegra Goodman at her peak: evocative, richly detailed settings (the exuberant 1990s and the wonderfully funky neighborhoods of Boston and San Francisco); characters that are funny, questioning, and smart (dot-com prodigies, philosophy majors, hippie Hasids, and disgruntled booksellers); and dialogue that is so precise and true you often forget you’re reading. Add a fascinating subplot about a rare cookbook collection and the history of taste, and it’s easy to see why this study of financial, romantic, and culinary appetites is one of the best novels of the year.
