THE COOKBOOK COLLECTOR by Allegra Goodman

The author describes her book in an interview at PowellsBooks.Blog: “a novel about two sisters: pragmatic Emily, the CEO of a successful Silicon Valley start-up, and romantic Jess, who works for an antiquarian bookseller named George. Set during the dot-com boom and bust, the book is about hunger: for money, for material things, for food, for fame, for knowledge, for companionship, for love.”
