We now have signed paperback copies available of Kitchens of the Great Midwest, signed in-person by author J. Ryan Stradal at our in-store event with him on November 4th, 2019.
"How refreshing to find a novel that is truly new and original. The story of Eva Thorvald, the famous and famously private chef, is told through a quirky, honest, endearing cast of characters who come into or sidle next to her life at different times. From their vantage points, we experience not only the particularity of her culinary prowess, but also a full sense of life in the Midwest. Joyfully crafted, funny and heartfelt, Stradal’s debut novel is a pleasure to read." - Melinda, Bookshop Santa Cruz Head Book Buyer
