Editorial Reviews

Reference Reviews
...well worth reading, an impressive compilation.
Dionysos
...an excellent start...Kiell's section on food in literature is most useful, but it is to his list on drink that readers of Dionysos will, no doubt, turn with particular interest....fine book...
PPC
...A must have for anyone interested in food and literature...
Choice
Timely and valuable and the first of its kind, this compendium recognizes a fast-growing and underacknowledged interest in food and wine that become an obsession in Western culture.
Gastronomica
...authors of more than twenty countries are included, providing a valuable comparative resource for anyone interested in representations of food in literature....books and articles analyzing representations of cannibalism, anorexia, and bulimia in literature are clearly of interest to psychologists, but also provide a new perspective for food historians, anthropologists, and students of literature who might well be unaware of this body of information....of value to anyone interested in food and drink in literature.
Public Library Quarterly
...this book clearly fills a gap...not only a valuable tool for the serious researcher but a delightful find for the general reader with a passing interest in the subject, to dip into and savour at will.
