9780061673825: Not for Bread Alone: Writers on Food, Wine, and the Art of Eating

Twenty-two acclaimed writers celebrate the art of eating

Wendell Berry · Colette · William Corbett · Michael Dorris · Alexandre Dumas · M. F .K. Fisher · Michael Frank · Betty Fussell · Evan Jones · Judith B. Jones · Barbara Kafka · Madeline Kamman · Charles Lamb · Rose Macaulay · Henry Matthews · Joyce Carol Oates · Francine Prose · Paul Schmidt · James Seay · Charles Simic · Edward Steinberg · Alice Waters

There is more to be gained from our daily bread than mere sustenance. Curiosity, romance, ritual, and insight can be as much a part of a meal as any of its edible ingredients. In this delectable collection of essays on fine food and drink, twenty-two renowned writers capture the gestures, the celebrations, and the moments in which food, wine, and the act of eating transcend their initial purposes to become something far greater. A window into the eating lives of a handful of our finest literary artists, Not for Bread Alone is a tasty and most satisfying delight—a true culinary classic.
