As you sit down to gorge yourself today, and give thanks for our many modern conveniences like stretchy pants, we invite you to gorge your mind on a literary feast, as well.
- Take last year’s Thanksgiving post, which features an O Henry short story that’s a strange mix of “The Gift of the Magi” and the pie eating contest from “Stand by Me.”
- Or there’s the Cheever Story we posted for Christmas which provides a more humorous take on the theme of abundant feasting.
- You could smack your lips as you watch an ad for this innovative literary treat.
- Or take in a couple paragraphs from this Ray Bradbury post, which speak to the gifts of a good cook.
- You could dream of the food of San Francisco, like Kerouac
- Or enjoy a Proustian bite with Anton Ego.
- Or take a seat next to William Least Heat Moon as he feasts in one place or another.
- And when you’re ready to belch out your approval of the massive meal you’ve consumed, we invite you to examine the belching prowess of one of the great southern belles of the literary world.
