"Draws with literary aplomb the correlation of what and how we
eat to who we are." -- Austin Chronicle

Memorable moments with food -- collected by "one of the best of
the young food writers" (Jeffrey Steingarten, Vogue food
critic). New York Times Magazine food editor Amanda Hesser
has showcased the food-inspired recollections of some of America's
leading writers --playwrights, screenwriters, novelists, poets,
journalists -- in the magazine. Eat, Memory collects the
best stories and recipes to accompany them.

Ann Patchett confronts her stubbornness in a heated argument she
once had with her then-boyfriend, now husband, over dinner at the
famed Paris restaurant Taillevent. Tom Perrotta explains how his
long list of food aversions almost landed him in an East German
prison. Gabrielle Hamilton finds that hiring a blind cook leads her
into ethical terrain she wasn't prepared to navigate. And poet
Billy Collins muses over his relationship with a fish he once ate.
Also included are stories by Chang-rae Lee, Patricia Marx, John
Burnham Schwartz, George Saunders, Colson Whitehead, Kiran Desai,
Pico Iyer, and Heidi Julavits, among others.
