Praise For The Supreme Macaroni Company: A Novel…
“Superb. Trigiani’s ability to bring the large, warm, enveloping--if somewhat dysfunctional--family to life will keep any reader engrossed and entertained.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Val’s eccentric family keeps the book going at a quick pace. . . . Recommended for all Trigiani fans and those who’ve enjoyed a good cookie table (an Italian tradition commonly seen at weddings in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia).”
— Library Journal
“I’ve always loved reading Trigiani, but [this] is something totally new and completely wonderful: a rich, sweeping epic which tells the story of the women and men who built America dream by dream. If you’re meeting her work for the first time, get ready for a lifelong love affair. Splendid.”
— Kathryn Stockett, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Help
“The novel is a sweeping epic, but at its heart, it’s a love story. It speaks to an era of possibilities.”
— Providence Journal
“Delightful, energetic. . . . Trigiani is a seemingly effortless storyteller.”
— Boston Globe
