About the Author

Sean Brand studied literature and his first job included a stint as a restaurant reviewer, where the lunch was less than literary, but his fascination for fictional food began to blossom. Since then, as a published poet, he has enjoyed many of his meals between two covers, as well as actually on a plate. Sean is the author of a number of other books on art, politics, and medieval Europe.

Literary Feasts: Inspired Eating from Classic Fiction

I bought this book as a gift for a writer friend who loves to cook, but I will not bother giving this MOST FRUSTRATING tome to them. I expected recipes, however, this pompous assemblage with its misleading title seemed more like some highbrow and pretentious compilation of reminders of foodstuffs and meals mentioned in various books put together just to impress someone's tonier friends with their reading list. No recipes, not even half the fun it could have been. I gave it 2 stars, as the graphics are lovely, as is the cover, but the content was an exersise in snooty pretention.

Don't waste your money unless you are looking for a guide to put together a party on a theme - - this will help somewhat with that, but you will still need to ferret out the recipes from somewhere else. This was a major disappointment. I got more from THE BOOK LOVER'S COOKBOOK!

I purchased this book on a whim from a local bookstore and enjoyed it immensely. As a book lover and a food lover this book elegantly outlines some of the most memorable feasts found within classic literature. More of a coffee table book than an actual novel, this book is not only entertaining but enlightening about the interactions and deeper meanings attributed to the feasts within classic literature.
