Recipe by the Book: Kate Christensen’s Soft Boys

Recipe by the BookFor decades, poet Harry Quirk has lived happily in Brooklyn with his wife, Luz, and their two children. But when Luz’s long-simmering suspicions of infidelity are ignited, Harry is summarily kicked out, leaving him to reckon with the consequence of his literary, marital, and parental failures. Kate Christensen’s The Astral is a funny, bittersweet, terrifically moving, and a perfect pick for your book club.

In this month’s Recipe by the Book, Kate shares with us her method for cooking the perfect soft-boiled egg—a recipe so deliciously simple, even Harry Quirk can manage it!
