About this title

Synopsis:

Bonnie Marranca has cooked up a tempting meal of writings that reflect on how the consumption of food or the lack of it takes on larger social significance. A Slice of Life is a banquet that readers will savor through its many courses.

A Slice of Life is a collection of contemporary food writing that readers can really sink their teeth into: one that examines the ineluctable link between nourishment, literature, and society. Represented here are some of the world's best known writers, many of whom like Nigella Lawson, Julia Child, Marcella Hazan, and Anthony Bourdain are well known for their alimentary musings, while others, like Charles Simic, Roland Barthes, Umberto Eco, Wole Soyinka and Susan Sontag are better known for their writings in other genres; all speak eloquently on the nature of food, language, and the adaptability of social customs.

About the Author:

Bonnie Marranca is the editor of American Garden Writing and The Hudson Valley Lives and has written extensively about the theater. The recipient of many awards and fellowships, she divides her time between New York City and the Hudson Valley. Betty Fussell writes frequently about food for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, and Vogue. Her many books include I Hear America Cooking and My Kitchen Wars.
