A Literary Feast. An Anthology, edited by Lilly Golden.

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, 1993. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Near Fine copy with a small indent to the spine fold in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. A Literary Feast is a sumptuous gathering of stories, essays, and excerpts that expound upon the art of eating, penned by some of the finest writers of our century. These twenty-seven pieces were chosen first for their literary quality and second for the gustatory pleasures they explore. Well-laden tables that have long inspired the imaginations of readers are featured in A Literary Feast, in works like James Joyce's "The Dead," Isak Dinesen's "Babette's Feast," Virginia Woolf's wonderful dinner in To the Lighthouse, and "Hunger Was Good Discipline" from Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. Also included are such writers as M. F. K. Fisher, A. J. Liebling, and Ludwig Bemelmans. Item #27038
