From classics such as Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, to modern bestsellers such as Lisa See's Snow Flower and the Secret Fan and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, you'll find provocative discussion ideas (such as why authors chose to incorporate certain foods into their books) and evocative recipes (Cowboy Hash for Half-Broke Horses and Spanakopita for Corelli’s Mondolin) for 100 of the hottest books being chosen by book clubs today. Fully revised and updated, the second edition of Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp's The Book Club Cookbook includes new entries on The Help, Cutting for Stone, Water for Elephants and My Sister's Keeper.

As a member of an avid Book Club that always incorporates a meal or cuisine into our meetings with relation to what is noted in the book we've just read, this Cook Book is inspiring. All of our members bought the book and have used it to suggest future readings but also to be inspired by the Book Clubs featured. Authors even contribute their own recipes. Not only is this a great cook book but an interesting read as well. I highly recommend it...especially to Book Clubs.

I thought the book was interesting, just was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for something that would have some questions about the books we could use in a discussion. The recipes looked good and there were some intersting ideas from other book clubs, but I did return the book.

This was a birthday gift for our daughter in law, but of course I had to look through it before I wrapped it. I thought the idea of having a cookbook related to authors and books was a great idea. Our daughter in law is a good cook and was really pleased with this book so I think I made a right choice for one of her gifts.
