The twists and turns are what makes it -- that and a solid recipe for fried chicken.
-Max Watman, The New York Times, 4/12/2017
"Jess is a smart, funny, straight-shooting writer with a great sense for food, and her A Year Right Here is no exception."―Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life and Delancey
"A Year Right Here weaves together sharp observation, emotional candor, and strong characterization. In telling the story of her year at home, Jess Thomson illuminates our corner of the world."―Claire Dederer, author of Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses
"A book about parenting, food, and letting go, Jess Thomson's writing is full of emotion, wit and truth. This book strikes me to the core as I see myself reflected in the incongruence and beauty of daily life and our obsession with food and cooking."―Aran Goyoaga, author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats: My Family's Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking and creator of Cannelle et Vanille
"Expertly weaving the trials and travails of daily life―one filled with alternating bouts of triumph and struggle―with her yearlong exploration of the Pacific Northwest's edible gems, Thomson invites the reader into her imperfect, thoroughly genuine world. Her writing is never indulgent, never treacly, always honest. She makes the quotidian both remarkable and universal, garnishing each beautifully-crafted phrase with a dose of unsentimental realism."―Cheryl Sternman Rule, author of Yogurt Culture and Ripe

The parenting moments are so honestly observed that I would suddenly find myself crying out of nowhere and then laughing seconds later.
I'm so glad there are recipes in it because I will want to turn to it again and again.
