Bookseller Praise for Eat Joy:

"Food is intrinsically linked with our memories. This book is a wonderful collection of how food affects us, how it forms our lives and memories and gives us a sense of place and self." —Lee Virden Geurkink, Monkey and Dog Books (Fort Worth, TX) "Some of these stories are so heart-wrenching; some are funny—this book has something for everyone. Be careful, though; some will need a box of Kleenex." —Jason Kennedy, Boswell Book Company (Milwaukee, WI) "A delightful and wide-ranging collection." —Emily Crowe, An Unlikely Story (Plainville, MA) "Such a satisfying collection of essays about our connections to food and experiences. Just like a wonderful meal, you'll devour this collection and lean back 100 percent satiated and content." —Nicole Cousins, White Birch Books (North Conway, NH) "Eat Joy is a thoughtful collection of stories from writers about the food and recipes that have comforted them most in their lives. Sometimes sad, sometimes hopeful, these stories remind us how much of the human experience we all share. With recipes for everything from basic white rice to more in-depth meals, this collection will feed your soul. Perfect for anyone who enjoys food writing, essays, and the ideal gift for a friend who has gone through or is going through a difficult situation. The book itself is a comfort and joy." —Beth Seufer Buss, Bookmarks (Winston-Salem, NC) "Loved all these short stories about comfort food and the recipes these authors used to get through tough times in their lives.

The visceral quality of food as it relates to memory is unparalleled—sometimes we eat our favorite foods as comfort during grief, or a dish prepared by a friend becomes healing food from then on. Eat Joy is a lively collection of autobiographical stories in which food plays a starring role (recipes included—and they are lovely!). A diverse selection of celebrated authors tell stories of growth and loss, healing and homecoming, and the resulting collection is nothing short of magical." —Mary Wahlmeier, The Raven Book Store (Lawrence, KS) "Humans have an intimate relationship with food.
