5.0 out of 5 stars Treat yourself to Bread Alone, July 9, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bread Alone: A Novel (Hardcover)
Wyn Morrison is feisty, funny and at-large. This is a woman who's strong and vulnerable, witty and morose, self-aware and clueless. In other words -real!
Judith Hendricks has set her down in a vivid landscape with a cast of characters that ring true with every word. People that you'll recognize (but no stock characters these - distinct and conflicted with secrets of their own) and the ones you've never met, you kinda wish you had (well, maybe with the exception of Linda, Wyn's belligerent, cantankerous co-worker).
She explores the prism of relationships from familial to romantic to platonic to collegial with honesty and wit. But Hendricks is not only witty, she's plenty smart, too. I learned about the art of baking (besides all the tempting recipes), Seattle (did you know the skyscrapers have nicknames?), music (in a special way you'll have to find out for yourself) and the innards of cars (well, I guess I didn't learn enough on that subject).
Her prose is fluid and seamless and when it was over, I wanted more. Judith Hendricks goes on my list of writers whose books I look forward to reading.
I enjoyed every bite of Bread Alone.
