Reviews

"A whimsical, mouthwatering and edifying odyssey through New York neighborhoods and beyond."--Sam Roberts "New York Times"
If you need to know anything about the knish, this is your book.--Sam Roberts "Forward"
"[T]he Mark Kurlansky of the knish"--Sam Roberts "New York Observer"
"Silver's single-subject work of social history has been shaped with skill and nuance and--to continue chewing on the metaphor--seasoned with sharp humor and deep affection, not just for the pastry but for all the people whose lives it has touched. . . . Her voice is energetic and deeply personal. . . . An accomplished piece of research shared in a delightfully readable way."--Sam Roberts "Kirkus Reviews"
