Adorned in a charming beige cloth cover, this reissue of Kate Lebo's whimsical love letter to poetry and pie-making features a new introduction by Lebo on commonplace books and six new illustrations by Jessica Bonin.
This cliche-busting book explores facts--real and imagined--about pie with a practical punch. Kate Lebo is the author of Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour and Butter (Sasquatch Books) and A Commonplace Book of Pie (Chin Music Press).
Her essay "The Loudproof Room" appeared in New England Review and was also chosen for Best American Essays 2015.
