Acclaim for Nietzsche's Angel Food Cake

"Like good sausage, or a breakfast I once had in Manilla, Rebecca Coffey's new book is filled with things I can't describe and maybe don't want to know about. I only know it's wonderful."

"Oh my God, I love these! More! More! More! This will appeal to foodies and literary types, and will stretch the boundaries of the 'cookoir' genre, for sure."
--Erika Penzer Kerekes, Food Columnist, L. A. Examiner

"So brilliantly funny—and insane, obsessive, sprawling, vivid, satisfying, and lush."
--Dee LaDuke, Writer, Girlfriends and Designing Women

"Absolutely fantastic stuff!"
--Binnie Klein, Radio Host, A Miniature World, WPKN-FM

"Hilarious, smart, intensely literary, and delicious in every way."
--Elissa Bassist, Humor and Women's Literature Editor, The Rumpus.
