Food and Culture in Contemporary American Fiction

Food and Culture in Contemporary American Fiction - Lorna Piatti-Farnell Rounded up from 2.5. Reads like a dissertation that was rather hastily published: flat, too many copyediting errors, offers a broad survey of books read and decent readings, but not an engaging argument. Secondary sources are dropped in at odd angles to the texts they are meant to commment upon. Still, if you're a food-focused literary scholar, you're going to have to read it, and the bibliography should be very useful.
