    Emily and Jessamine Bach are opposites in every way: 28-year-old Emily is the CEO of Veritech; 23-year-old Jess is an environmental activist and graduate student in philosophy. Emily is making a fortune in Silicon Valley, Jess works in an antiquarian bookstore. The Cookbook Collector is a novel about getting and spending, and about the substitutions we make when we can’t find what we’re looking for. But above all, it is about holding on to what is real in a virtual world: love that stays.

    Freida says: "An engaging read"
    "Slight & souless, although well witten"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    While there are important themes touched upon here, there is almost nothing at stake for the characters, minimal interesting conflict (even between distinctly different sisters) and virtually no memorable insights.


    Could you see The Cookbook Collector being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It would play best in animation, a Saturday morning cartoon of "lost girls finds themselves."
