The dot-com boom is in full hurricane force in Allegra Goodman‘s novel about two sisters and how different, and how alike, they can be.

It’s just before the bubble bursts, as “The Cookbook Collector” opens. Twenty-something wunderkind Emily Bach is the CEO of a web startup that’s going places. Her boyfriend Jonathan is with a different — and competing — company. Emily’s little sister Jess, a grad student who works at an antiquarian bookstore, is her big sister’s opposite in many ways.

The trouble starts when Emily shares some insider info with Jonathan — for reasons only someone in love can understand — and the story then becomes about loyalty and greed. And Jess is in the middle of all this, too.
