2017 IAN Book of the Year Award for Outstanding Women’s Fiction

For readers who love Adriana Trigiani, Jennifer Weiner and Liane Moriarty, Forks, Knives, and Spoons is a light-hearted, thought-provoking coming of age story that takes readers on a nostalgic journey back to the 1980s and 1990s. Romantic, witty and warm.
There are three kinds of guys: forks, knives, and spoons. That is the final lesson that Amy York’s father sends her off to college with, never suspecting just how far his daughter will take it. Clinging to the Utensil Classification System as her guide, Amy tries to convince her skeptical roommate, Veronica Warren, of its usefulness as they navigate the heartbreaks and soul mates of college and beyond.

Beginning in 1988, their freshman year at Syracuse University, Amy and Veronica meet an assortment of guys—from slotted spoons and shrimp forks to butter knives and sporks—all while trying to learn if the UCS holds true. On the quest to find their perfect steak knives, they learn to believe in themselves—and not to settle in love or life.

    “Letters and gifts are as precious as any old proclamation.

    “I love how you can leave your stuff all over your floor but you unwrap gifts and open envelopes, which are kind of meant to be ripped, like they were rare historical documents.”
    Cris Lohas quoted2 years ago
    How monumental it seemed to be stepping out, a woman with a real job, into real life, her college days through.
