Welcome Daniele Lanzarotta, Author of Shattered Souls

I will never understand those vampires who feed off animals or bags of donated blood. Let’s face it… if you are a vampire like those Cullens, who drink from animals, you are bound to get hair in your mouth while eating. Who can enjoy a meal like that? And those bags of donated blood are no different than frozen…See More

Welcome Nancy Klann-Moren, Author of The Clock of Life

The mere mention of southern cuisine conjures up mind-images of moss covered cypress alongside lazy dirt roads.  A tale set in the South, without the smells, tastes, and devotion put into its dishes would feel like half a tale. It's as essential as the characters and scenery. In my novel, The Clock Of Life, there…See More

Welcome William Knight, Author of GeNeration

Food for worms Eating starts and ends all the events in Generation, from the tarmac table of the opening scene to the al fresco irony of the final twist. But to describe these bracketing meals as cosy dinners for two would be to misunderstand the relationship between the food and the eater. Hendrix Harrison is a…See More

Welcome Jackie Jones, Author of The Wardens Series

In every city someone or something is feeding, or being fed on. It is seldom you get to choose which you’ll be. Everything from the very basic, to black-market-only cuisine, can be found gracing the palates of The Wardens Series Season Two characters. Having to hunt down rogue supernaturals all over the world…See More

Hi Shelley!

I just thought of a book that might interest you. Perhaps you've read it: Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. If you don't know it, it's not at all like the movie, it's a memoir of sorts, but it reads like good fiction. That book is loaded with food talk, and recipes if I recall correctly. I know I mentioned Pat Conroy to you in an earlier comment, but this one popped into my sieve-like pea brain this morning. Thought it might be worth passing on.

Oh, and Bill Buford's book Heat about training to be a chef in Mario Batali's restaurant is another good one--I think I put on weight while reading that one! I have a chef in my next novel, so I've been reading food related books--hence my blurting multiple titles at once!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for the friending, Shelley! You've made my day! :-)

And no, your pun wasn't too much, but then I love a good pun (yours made me laugh out loud, so how can that be bad?). And writing about food...mmm, I might bloat to a five-hundred pound land-monster if I was in that line of work--I refer to some of my favourite cookbooks as pornography, so there's a potential vice there ;-) Thank heavens there are brave gals like yourself acting as scribes on that oh-so-wonderful subject!

Have you discovered any of the Phaidon books about food? In case you don't know, if you sign up for their newsletters you get members only invites to killer sales. They make decadent books on art, photography, architecture, film, and food! I got one in the last sale called The Art of the Restaurateur by Nicholas Lander. It's all little stories about well-known chefs starting their restaurants. I've got to get a couple other books out of the way before I can bite into this one (how's that for too much on the pun scale? ;-) ). They make some of the most beautiful cookbooks, too. 

Drop me a line if you'd like to chat about food, books, or whatever!

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Shelley, nice to meet you.

Thank you for the friendship :-)

Welcome to In Praise of Literature, Shelley!

Am I reading right, that you have a blog about food in fiction? I love that! It makes me think of Pat Conroy's novels, how food plays such an important role in his fiction. I'm a foodie who doesn't eat meat, so food has become a major element in my fiction too. Looking forward to checking out your blog! :-)

Feel free to tell us about the books you loved, or the ones you didn't, start a discussion, post links to blogs, reviews, or articles that you think everyone needs to read--anything that fits your definition of literature goes, including song lyrics, poetry, film scripts, and plays! One caveat: this is not a self-promoting group; it is meant to champion the work of other writers, so we look forward to hearing what you think we need to read! Most important, please have fun!

I'm a bit new to the group moderator biz, so if you think I've overlooked something, let me know and I'll do my best to come through.

Glad to have you aboard!

Cheers!

Thank you for reaching out, Shelley. I've been considering deep-sixing She Writes for being too clickish, but maybe I'll give it another look.

Lovely to connect with you, Shelley. Thanks for reaching out!
