And the bread will rise!

Pulling his characters from the tech industry, Michigan native Robin Sloan delivers another delightful and humorous read. Lois, a coder at a robotics company has trouble adulting. She has a kitchen, but has never cooked and her entire life revolves around her work. Then one day, the owners of her favorite take out restaurant are at her door to say goodbye to their "Number One Eater". They wish her the best and give her a sourdough starter that changes her life. 

The result? We follow Lois on an incredible journey of learning about the mysterious ancient past of her starter, the art of baking sourdough and her efforts to teach a robot arm how to bake. A seriously spectacular read.
