  • This is a book-lover's book about food: about taste, smell, touch, appetite, and all the pleasures of the table. It features 77 poems and prose pieces by some of the world's finest writers, from Basho to Betty Fussell, Colette to Calvin Trillin - all selected and complemented with illustrations by artist/anthologist Bascove, the creator of the best-selling Where Books Fall Open. The witty selections are complemented by fifteen full-color paintings by the editor, paintings whose "gently voluptuous figuration [is] beautiful...Their most deeply felt quality is a kind of animating tendresse all too rare today" (Gerrit Henry, Art in America).
