Reviews

Counihan's book is well written and will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers...I would recommend this book to those whose interests lie in foodways, gender studies, ethnography and folklore. A Tortilla is Like Life would be a good addition to any reading list, and a beneficial resource for those who desire to understand the complex associations of gender, food, culture and ethnicity.--Cynthia Egan-Kiigemagi, Memorial University of Newfoundland"Digest: A Journal of Foodways and Culture" (07/15/2013)
Counihan's work represents an important contribution to Mexican American culture.--María Beltrán-Vocal, DePaul University, Chicago"Oral History Review" (08/03/2012)
