9780060957322: American Pie: Slices of Life (and Pie) from America's Back Roads

Crossing class and color lines, and spanning the nation (Montana has its huckleberry, Pennsylvania its shoofly, and Mississippi its sweet potato), pie -- real, homemade pie -- has meaning for all of us. But in today's treadmill, take-out world -- our fast-food nation -- does pie still have a place?

As she traveled across the United States in an old Volvo named Betty, Pascale Le Draoulec discovered how merely mentioning homemade pie to strangers made faces soften, shoulders relax, and memories come wafting back. Rambling from town to town with Le Draoulec, you'll meet the famous, and sometimes infamous, pie makers who share their stories and recipes, and find out how a quest for pie can lead to something else entirely.

Review:

“Like a good slice of apple, sweet without being cloying and tart without being bitter.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[American Pie] will move pie enthusiasts to dust off their rolling pins and get busy.” (Chicago Tribune)

“As satisfying as a slice of homemade pie...an armchair traveler’s heaven.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“American Pie is to be savored, slice by slice, chapter by chapter.” (San Diego Union-Tribune)

“A rich, satisfying account of one woman’s cross-country search for the age-old dessert.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Le Draoulec has an instinct for where the most interesting story might lie...as this book charmingly demonstrates.” (Washington Post Book World)

“Le Draoulec explores America’s relationship with pie with a journalist’s instinct and curiosity.” (Associated Press)
