Book Twentyone: American Pie

American Pie: Slices of Life (and Pie) from America's Back Roads, Pascale Le Draoulec

If you don't expect this to be an end-all-be-all exploration of all kinds of pie across our great nation, then you'll be pleasantly surprised. But, if you were, say, expecting this to be written by a pie expert (she's not), or that her cross country journey would be at all planned out (it's not), or that she offered anything new or insightful about pie (she doesn't), then you will be pretty disappointed. It's really just a sweet and simple story about a woman who decides to take a road trip with a friend to eat pie and write about her journey. The book is ultimately successful in that I really just wanted to a big old slice of pie while reading the whole thing. But it's a bit of a disappointment when you realize how little pie she actually tries on her journey and she often doesn't even comment on the pie once she finds it. But, there's a whole lot of recipes and some photos scattered throughout, and, hey, it's a book about pie!
