A VIRTUAL BOOKSHELF BY AMY TIMBERLAKE (& SKUNK AND BADGER TOO!)
Amy says: An idiosyncratic wonder! History, memories, recipe ideas are all tossed together in
compressed bursts of prose under pairing like “Chocolate & Almond,” and “Mushroom & Egg.”
And you can cook from it too!
Amy says: Yes, geologists have a word for that. A weirdly addictive book if you like
words. If you’re an Important Rock Scientist? Essential!
Amy says: I heard this on audiobook (David Hyde Pierce!) and loved it! If you’re as uneasy as I was about writing a ‘talking animal book,’ this story may convince you to try it.
Amy says: Worth re-reading! These beautiful, well-crafted stories made me want to try my hand at writing an episodic story with repeating characters.
