Description
This truly worldwide collection of writings about food will find favor with even the most discriminating palates. Here are texts by culinary experts (M.F.K. Fisher and Anthelme Brillat-Savarin), literary lions (Charles Dickens, Herman Melville, Marcel Proust, Ambrose Bierce), contemporary greats (Nora Ephron, Erica Jong, John Updike), distinguished poets (Emily Dickinson, Pablo Neruda, Marge Piercy), and the avant-garde (Arthur Rimbaud, Osip Mandelstam, CÚsar Vallejo), and excerpts from sacred texts (Leviticus, the Upanishads). For easy consumption, the book is divided into such sections as Fruits, Meats, and Desserts, while artist John Digby contributes several surreal collages.
