Hot on the heels of Lust, the second title in our Chronicles of Sin series explores excess in all its bulging glory. Gluttony is a satisfying smorgasbord of good writing about an overabundance of food and drink - and its consequences. Everyone loves to eat and drink, and in Gluttony readers can indulge to their hearts' content -- without gaining an ounce. Including short stories, essays, and excerpts, Gluttony offers such delicious tidbits as Russell Baker on fried bologna, M.F.K. Fisher on the carnal beauty of excess, and Fran Lebowitz on the salutary dietary effects of stress. Featuring both period and contemporary pieces, Gluttony stretches the waistband of fine food writing.
