The Week (US) - - 22 Arts - By Robin Sloan

Robin Sloan’s “oddly delectable” sec­ond novel reads like a fa­ble, said El­iz­a­beth Hand in The Wash­ing­ton Post. Lois Clary is an over­worked young San Fran­cisco ro­bot­ics engi­neer who in­her­its a crock of sour­dough starter from her fa­vorite soup shop. When she starts bak­ing the bread her­self, its mag­i­cal qual­i­ties open doors and con­nect her to a utopian farm­ers mar­ket that al­lows Sloan to have de­li­cious fun with Sil­i­con Val­ley’s ob­ses­sions. “My only mild dis­ap­point­ment was that I couldn’t eat my copy.”
