Brevity review of Bread

Here's an excerpt from Sierra Dickey's thoughtful review of Bread in one of my favorite journals:

"With her title 'a memoir of hunger,' Knopp doesn’t mean just the hunger I feel now because it’s late in the day and I ate lunch early. She means all of our human hungers: for justice, for love, for meaning. The first chapters make an inventory of longings, and bit by bit, Knopp slowly shows us how she’s come to satiate herself."
