Fiction for Food Lovers

Bon Appétit magazine recently published a guide “for those of us who like to read, eat, and read about eating” ("Get Ready for Foodie Fiction," Feb. 7, 2013). Writer Andrew Chee enjoys classic scenes such as an oyster dinner toward the start of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and a breakfast walk through Les Halles in Paris in James Baldwin’s Giovanni’s Room, but also recommends some more recent novels that revolve around food:

The Lost Art of Mixing by Erica Bauermeister

The Epicure’s Lament by Kate Christensen

An Evil Eye by Jason Goodwin

The Dinner by Herman Koch

The Book of Salt by Monique Truong
