About this item

Literary Nonfiction. Food. Essays. EATEN BACK TO LIFE is a series of essays, observations, and overly intellectualized meanderings about eating, drinking, indulging, and the culture and philosophy of food. With his trademark skeptical, stink-eyed observations, Jonah Campbell considers the many pleasures of modern life—including urchins, fudge, potato chips, calvados, Nigella Lawson, and depictions of corpulence in old French movies. In the tradition of writers like MFK Fisher and David Foster Wallace, Campbell casts his shrewd, wary gaze on life's taken-for-granteds to reveal the meaning buried beneath the prosaic business of eating and drinking.
