Best-selling author Jim Harrison also wrote essays on food, earning praise as "the American Rabelais" and "the poet laureate of appetite." This book is a collection of many of his essays on food, where he muses on the relationship between hunter and prey, interrogates the obscure language of wine reviews, and delivers a menifesto against the bland, mass-produced food of our time, proposing instead what he calls the Vivid Diet. Harrison's writing is a program for living, and this book is shot through with his delight in the pleasures of the senses, with glimpses of his life over the last 15 years.
