The Hungry Soul: Eating and the Perfecting of Our Nature
Free Press, 1994 - 248 pagini

This book examines the phenomena of eating, natural and cultural - from metabolism, appetite, and taste, to hospitality, table manners, and the ritual meal, and reveals how eating not only feeds the body but also nourishes the soul.
