"A wild, geeky, flour-dusted ride through the oddball food and techie communities of San Francisco."
“[Sourdough] fuses the story of worker alienation and embodied consciousness and microbiomes and microbiology with robotics in a beautiful way."
—Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

When Lois Clary, a young and overworked software engineer at a robotics company in San Francisco, is unexpectedly given a sourdough bread starter, she is tasked with keeping it alive. She must feed it daily, play it music, and learn to bake with it. And just like that, a whole new world — one of egg-cracking robots, an underground farmer's market, and unbelievable technological food experiments — cracks wide open.
Leavened by the infectious style that made Robin Sloan’s Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore a best-selling sensation, Sourdough is more than satisfying; it's pure delight.
