The Joy Of Eating : The Virago Book of Food

By Monica Ali, Elizabeth David, Jhumpa Lahiri, Nigella Lawson, Sylvia Plath, Jeanette Winterson; [Editor Jill Foulston]

Virago, Great Britain, 2009. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Beatrix Potter wove one of her most malicious tales around the roly-poly pudding. Colette counted the nuts she would pick before falling asleep in the French countryside. Dorothy Wordsworth noted her pie-making sessions in her diary and Anne Frank observed the eating habits of her companions in hiding. Food is a constant in our lives, and it has always been a basic ingredient of women's writing - in household books, cookbooks, diaries, letters and fiction. In this, the first anthology to concentrate on international food writing by women, you can go on a picnic with Monica Ali, learn about Frida Kahlo's wedding feast and indulge your appetites with Edwidge Danticat and Barbara Pym. Try making Elisabeth Luard's Afghan Betrothal Custard, Martha Washington's marzipan birds or Nigella Lawson's favourite comfort food. And why not sneak into the literary kitchens of Banana Yoshimoto, Emily Bronte and Angela Carter? Something's cooking. . . 405 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Four Hundred Good Stories

Four Hundred Good Stories

By Robert Rudd Whiting [Collected]

The Baker & Taylor Company, England, 1912. Softcover. Fair Condition. A collection of anecdotes, like corned beef hash, should be judged as much by what is left out as by what is put in. The editor has sought to exclude from this little book all stories of purely local appeal, as well as stories that depend for their humour upon ridicule of any nation or creed. The index of the subjects illustrated by these stories will, it is thought, be helpful to public speakers. A speech is a long, narrow passage leading to some broad conclusion. Anecdotes are the lamps that light the way. If the passage be obscure and gloomy, it may be that few will follow it. But if the passage be cheerfully lighted, all will gladly accompany the guide, and long after reaching the conclusion they will remember with pleasure the way through which he led them. Foxing to covers. Foxing to covers. 262 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Cover edges rubbed and corners bumped. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Anthology; United States; Miscellaneous; Inventory No: 231342..
