"Voracious is charming, poignant, and mouthwatering-a book for anyone who has craved a meal in a novel. Cara Nicoletti's writing captures the nourishment of literature and all the magical and tempting ways food and books enrich our lives."--Kate Christensen, author of Blue Plate Special and The Great Man
"Nothing is more comforting than getting to know a new friend through their stories and their food. With Cara Nicoletti's book, I'm certain I have a new friend in her."--Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker: Homemade Decadence
"Voracious satisfies two powerful appetites: for great food and for great books. We come to know Cara and her family as she digs into the lives of beloved authors-Homer, Melville, Woolf, Tartt-and discovers the best techniques for making donuts and braising lamb in wine. Her debut is a feast: warm, big-hearted, and inviting."--Nina MacLaughlin, author of Hammer Head
"As inviting as a bowl of homemade chocolate pudding. . . . Nicoletti turns both reading and cooking into eagerly anticipated visceral experiences."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A pleasure for hungry readers."--Kirkus Reviews
"It's not the type of book you'll ever want to put down.... But more than this, Voracious functions as a remarkably fresh take on coming-of-age."--National Post
