About the Author
NANCY MAURO is the author of the critically acclaimed debut New World Monkeys and most recently The Sugar Thief, a novel about a secret pastry recipe that upends the lives of an entire immigrant family.
Nancy grew up in Thunder Bay, Ontario, where her Italian-Canadian family owned the bakery that invented the wildly popular (and equally enigmatic) Persian pastry. She now lives in New York City with her husband, children and a rolling pin or two.
Reviews
PRAISE FOR THE SUGAR THIEF
"The Sugar Thief is as deliciously tart and layered as the legendary pastry at the centre of the story. I devoured it with gusto."
--Sarah Knight, bestselling author of Calm the F*ck Down

"The Sugar Thief is an ingeniously plotted story about immigrant families and YouTube stars that is stuffed with knockout sentences. Nancy Mauro offers the literary equivalent of a show-stopping pastry with her surprising and satisfying novel."
--Kevin Chong, author of The Double Life of Benson Yu

"The Sugar Thief is no mere confection written with comic brio, Nancy Mauro's heartfelt novel is also a trenchant examination of our algorithm-chasing mass culture and the knotty allegiances and legacies of family and home."
-Teddy Wayne, Whiting Award-winning author of The Love Song of Jonny Valentine

"Nancy Mauro is a writer of rare and refined talent. . . .With her flawless prose she opens bare the hearts of her characters, their vain desires and everyday tragedies."
--Anthony Swofford, New York Times bestselling author of Jarhead and Exit A
