In the Spice House

“Marnie Woodrow’s first short story collection opens with the counsel, “Eat so that you may love: and love so that you may eat.” Linked stories are standard these days, but an author who links by way of culinary debauchery is on to something fruitful (puns can’t be helped). Woodrow’s 16 tales are rich in hedonism and corporeality, and en masse they evoke a sense of our primal appetites for food and love.”
