New Food in Literature

Helen Garlick has put together another collection for Food in Literature, focussing this time on The Sandwich. Part 14 has extracts from 6 works.

Part 14 starts with an extract from The Cold Table by Helen Simpson, followed by extracts from the last volume in The Raj Quartet by Paul Scott. Helen's favourite authors, Agnes Jekyll and MFK Fisher contribute and are followed by Lord Peter Wimsey pointing out the incongruity of a ham sandwich in Unnatural Death by Dorothy Sayers, and the cucumber sandwiches, or lack of them, in The Importance of Being Earnest.
