Pressestimmen"It is beautifully written, a cooking up of love and self to feed the devouring appetites of Gerturde Stein and Alice B. Toklas that is nothing less than a masterpiece of delicate and -naturally- existentialist hedonism." -- Andro Linklater The Spectator 20041217 "The Book of Salt reminded me of how thrilling really fine writing can be, and how rarely one sees it" -- Sarah Waters
