Anna Marlis Burgard is the creative force behind hundreds of books including the bestselling A Guide for Grown-ups: Essential Wisdom from the Collected Works of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Hallelujah: The Poetry of Classic Hymns. Her work has been featured on Atlas Obscura, BBC Radio 1 and NPR, and in the New Yorker, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal. She honed her shrimp-cooking skills on Tybee Island, Georgia. In Shrimp Country: Recipes and Tales from the Southern Coasts (University Press of Florida), Burgard gathers more than 100 tempting recipes from regional classics like pilau, creole, and bog to global fare such as shrimp empanadas, shrimp saganaki, and tom kha gai. Brimming with the larger-than-life personalities of trawler captains, food truck masters, diner cooks, and award-winning chefs, Shrimp Country is a love letter to coastal communities and their joy-filled, soul-fueling kitchens.
