Product Details


“I could not wait to get home each night so I could get back to reading Home Made. I cared so much about everybody in it. Hauck’s writing embodies what she knows about successful volunteering: Show up on time when you said you would, do what you said you would do, and leave. I loved this book so much. I stayed up way later than I should have to just get one more chapter in before sleeping.”—Gabrielle Hamilton, New York Times bestselling author of Blood, Bones & Butter

“At every turn in Home Made, Liz Hauck suggests that we all ought to build a longer table, instead of a higher wall. With grace and tenderness, this memoir utterly affirms that it is the relationship that heals. Food brings us to the table, but cherishing leads us to joy and bravery. This is an important book because it reminds us not to venture to the margins to make a difference, but to allow the folks there to make us different. Your heart will be altered by this book.”—Gregory Boyle, S.J., New York Times bestselling author of Tattoos on the Heart and founder of Homeboy Industries

“Wise and empathetic, Liz Hauck describes the process of coming together through cooking and eating. Home Made is a meditation on hunger of all forms, of the limits and meaning of volunteerism, and the ways in which we continue the work of our deceased loved ones. Never cynical and always self-aware, Hauck knows that we may not rescue one another—but we can create a shared space where one is not alone.”—Michelle Kuo, author of Reading with Patrick

Home Made is a story of the promises we make and try to keep, to ourselves and to others. Liz Hauck tells a tender story about a group home for teenagers, and she reveals fascinating, sobering, and urgent truths about boyhood, inequality, and the power and promise of community.”—Piper Kerman, New York Times bestselling author of Orange Is the New Black

Home Made is an affecting, thoughtful look at the lives of boys in transitional moments and a personal reflection on a father’s legacy.”Booklist (starred review)
“A moving memoir about how ‘systems fail but food is revolutionary.’ Hauck creates indelible portraits . . . A captivating debut.”Kirkus (starred review)
