An elegant and inspired inquiry into the true nature of things. Once upon a time, we knew the origins of things: what piece of earth the potato on our dinner plate was grown in; who cobbled our shoes; from which well, spring, or rain barrel our water was dipped. This fascinating book traces three simple commodities of the title on their geographic and semantic journey from Cohen's table in Somerville's Someday Cafe to their various points of origin.
