HUNGER AND THIRST is a fine anthology of food writings, covering themes of metaphorical and actual hungers, including poems and songs, and providing first-person reflections on everything from vegetarianism to favorite or first cook books. A fine gathering of comforting, evocative essays evolves centered around an appreciation of food: perfect for any culinary collection seeking to add a literary dose. More than eighty contributors offer up unique views of food and drink, what we hunger for, what pains us or sustains us, what brings us joy as individuals, as family, as culture. This collection of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art invites you to sit at the collective table we share as the human community.
