Quotes & Awards

  • “A joyful celebration of a New York neighborhood…[A] lively mix of cultures…Kurlansky knows how to make food sexy.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “[A] riotous tale,,,a pitch-perfect symbol of culture clash. Alternately sociological and silly, Boogaloo is a hit.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “An addictive read…smart, funny, [and] formidable.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “Funny… poignant…spot-on writing.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “[A] comedy of gentrification…a cocktail of Jews, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Poles, Germans, and Dominicans, of different eras, music and, above all, foods, clashing and conjoining…[Kurlansky] has admirably re-created the texture of the pre-boom neighborhood, with just the right mixture of sweet and tart, tangy and spicy.”
