Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.671 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This is the story of how the narrator expanded his/her knowledge of food and learned to produce authentic cuisine. It’s also about how they became independent and finally made a success.

Con: Maybe if you’re really into food this would be interesting, but I found myself repeatedly checking to see how much of it was left to read.

The narrator is entirely ungrounded: we never learn name, age, gender or anything else.
