Twenty-two acclaimed writers celebrate the art of eating

Wendell Berry • Colette • William Corbett • Michael Dorris • Alexandre Dumas • M. F .K. Fisher • Michael Frank • Betty Fussell • Evan Jones • Judith B. Jones • Barbara Kafka • Madeline Kamman • Charles Lamb • Rose Macaulay • Henry Matthews • Joyce Carol Oates • Francine Prose • Paul Schmidt • James Seay • Charles Simic • Edward Steinberg • Alice Waters

There is more to be gained from our daily bread than mere sustenance. Curiosity, romance, ritual, and insight can be as much a part of a meal as any of its edible ingredients. In this delectable collection of essays on fine food and drink, twenty-two renowned writers capture the gestures, the celebrations, and the moments in which food, wine, and the act of eating transcend their initial purposes to become something far greater. A window into the eating lives of a handful of our finest literary artists, Not for Bread Alone is a tasty and most satisfying delight—a true culinary classic.
