A book about making a book. And cheddar biscuits.

This week, The Seattle Review of Books is sponsored by Portland essayist Tabitha Blankenbiller. You should be as grateful as we are: not only is she supporting the great writers who publish here, she's got a selection from her debut collection to share. "Pot pie for sale" is warm, personal, and funny. It's about deciding what you want to be when you grow up — after you're a grownup. And it's about biscuits.

"Pot pie" is a short piece, but toothsome (sorry, couldn't resist). We highly recommend you read it on our sponsorship page, then head out to to Third Place Books Ravenna on April 19 to hear Blankenbiller read and pick up a copy of Eats of Eden for yourself.

Sponsors like Tabitha Blankenbiller are making internet advertising 100% less awful — and supporting your access to book reviews and all the book news you can take. You can make the internet better too: sign up to sponsor a week in June or July.
