New York Times bestselling and award-winning author and National Book Award finalist Allegra Goodman's "most robust, fully realized and trenchantly meaningful work yet" (Publishers Weekly), a Sense and Sensibility for the Internet age.
Two sisters, opposites in every way. Twenty-eight-year-old Emily is the pragmatic CEO of a Silicon Valley startup, and twenty-three-year-old Jessamine is a grad student in philosophy and a part-timer at Yorick's Used and Rare Books in Berkeley. But life tests the sisters and their theories. Emily's success in the dot-com bubble has its costs, while Jess's work on a cache of rare cookbooks pulls her closer to her charming, arrogant employer.
