“Poignant, piquant and mischievously amusing.” —Wall Street Journal“Elegant. . . . In these stories, food has the power to define characters, propel plots, cause riots and even commit manslaughter.” —The New York Times“The comedy of these amusing character studies would, perhaps, have delighted Chekhov. . . . With Vapnyar, we're seeing the weird and wonderful development of a sophisticated artist.” —San Francisco Chronicle“Charming.... The stories come alive, inviting the reader to explore the kitchen tables and anxious stomachs of the characters.”—The New York Observer
