Spilling the beans

Eating, cooking, reading and writing in British women's fiction

Sarah Moss

Published by Manchester University Press

  • First book-length studies of food and literature in relation to fiction of any era
  • Food/ dietary studies are increasingly popular among academics and students
  • Sex and money have both been studied at great length, but food bridges - and complicates - the psychoanalytical and Marxist allegiances of scholars since it stands for both
  • Looks at the works of authors such as Frances Burney, Mary Wollstonecroft, Maria Edgeworth and Susan Ferrier
