The October/November book selection for Cook the Books Club (the club in which members read a selected novel and create a recipe inspired by it) was hosted by Simona from Briciole. Simona chose That Old Ace in the Hole by Annie Proulx. (Click here for my full review on GoodReads)
In the story, Bob Dollar begins working for Global Pork, scouting for sites for hog farms. To be honest, Bob Dollar and Global Pork didn’t do it for me. I had a hard time connecting with main character and thought his storyline wasn’t believable.
However, I absolutely loved the fictional town of
and all of its inhabitants, past and “present”.
They were nutty and endearing and exactly what I’d expect from an
isolated rural community! Wollybucket
