What hidden evasions and exclusions lie behind the subtle perfection of the BLT? What is the etymology of the croissant? Why did we drink all that Bud Lite Lime? What did you do to my face? This collection of writing by Jonah Campbell--metalhead, misanthrope, unrepentant good eater--explores the both the finest and most furtive of culinary pleasures. Food & Trembling approaches eating not with a four-figure expense account, but a rare insight and fierce appetite for the pleasures of the table. Also chips. Too many chips.

Review:

"Campbell is a mess of contradictions, singing the praises of caperberries in one essay and Doritos Late Night All Nighter Cheeseburger Flavored Tortilla Chips in the next; idealizing the authenticity of a chickpea shami offered by a literal hole-in-the-wall Montreal food counter here, yet perfectly happy to construct a soy milk-based béchamel there." -- Montreal Review of Books

"Jonah Campbell's Food & Trembling is a love song of food and language written by a lover of gravy and a hater of brunches." -- The Coast

"This book is the Fear and Loathing of food writing; thoughtful, vulgar, and hard to describe, but it is never boring." - Joey Comeau, author of Overqualified.

About the Author:
