Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
Whether enjoyed on the half-shell raw — alive, actually — or fried, stewed, baked or pickled, the oyster has an appeal that is unique and perfectly captured by food writer Rowan Jacobsen.
Los Angeles Times
The most remarkable single-subject book to come along in a while...Jacobsen covers oysters in exhaustive detail, but with writing so engaging and sprightly that reading about the briny darlings is almost as compulsive as eating them...this book will improve your oyster eating immeasurably...There may be no more pleasurable food than a raw oyster, there almost certainly is no better guide.
BN.com
Lively, lucid prose that should suck in even the most squeamish eaters.
