Description:

Bringing together twenty-two writers to discuss eating as more than simple sustenance, editor Daniel Halpern writes in his introduction, this collection is about "Eating our slice of daily bread, but not for the intake of that slice alone." These writers reveal the curiosity, romance, faith, and insight that can be as much a part of a meal as any of its edible ingredients; more so, they are windows into the eating lives of a handful of our greatest writers. Contributors include; Rose Macaulay, Wendell Berry, Charles Simic, Joyce Carol Oates, Judith B. Jones, M.F.K. Fisher, Barbara Kafka, Colette, Michael Frank, James Seay, William Corbett, Michael Dorris, Evan Jones, Alice Waters, Paul Schmidt, Francine Prose, Betty Fussell, Alexandre Dumas, Madeline Kaman, Harry Mathews, Charles Lamb, and Edward Steinberg.
