The Midwest Book Review loves The Year of Soup!

"The Year of Soup, as with his first novel A Family Institution, clearly establishes Howard Reiss' credentials as an especially gifted storyteller with a knack for creating fully developed characters and original storylines that engage the readers complete attention from first page to last."

"The Year of Soup is highly recommended and thoroughly entertaining, making it an appropriate addition for community library contemporary fiction collections."
