"After years of research on Jewish food in America, I thought I had discovered all there was to know about the bagel and its journey. But then I read Maria Balinska's lively and well-researched book, The Bagel. Her book has filled in many of the questions I had about the bagel and raised new ones, too."-Joan Nathan, Slate -- Joan Nathan Slate "A charming history of the roll with a hole, ranging across three centuries and two continents."-Glenn C. Altschuler, Forward -- Glenn C. Altschuler Forward "A delightful book that will enchant and educate its readers."-Morton I. Teicher, National Jewish Post & Opinion -- Morton I. Teicher National Jewish Post & Opinion "A fascinating topic and one that Maria Balinska treats superbly... I especially admire her scholarship, lively prose and tireless reportorial digging."-Joan Nathan, Moment -- Joan Nathan Moment "The book, thought-provoking and fact-filled, is one that also uses the bagel as a way of viewing Polish-Jewish history."-Mervyn Rothstein, New York Times -- Mervyn Rothstein New York Times "[A] scrumptious little book... The cover alone would whet any New Yorker's weekend appetite."- Sam Roberts, New York Times -- Sam Roberts New York Times "Balinska gives readers plenty to chew on... Thoroughly entertaining."-Dara Horn, Wall Street Journal -- Dara Horn Wall Street Journal "[A] gem of culinary and social reportage." - Sandra M. Gilbert, The American Scholar -- Sandra M. Gilbert The American Scholar "A good addition to the field of culinary history... This witty, readable, deeply researched book deserves to be read... Recommended."-Choice Choice "Charming and scholarly."- Sheldon Kirshner, Canadian Jewish News -- Sheldon Kirshner Canadian Jewish News '[The bagel has] found a fresh and lively chronicler in Maria Balinska, who seems as much at home with the bagel's Polish and Jewish past as with its all-American present ... Light and piquant, and yet at the same time seriously satisfying, The Bagel is anything but stodgy fare.' - Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman -- Michael Kerrigan The Scotsman "... [A] history of and love-letter to Jewish culture... ranges stylishly from the lifting of the siege of Vienna ... through ... the Nazi ghettos ... to the post-war New York bagel-baking unions and the gradual transformation of the bagel into an 'all-American' food." - Steven Poole, Guardian -- Steven Poole GuardianCríticas:
