Overview

A new essay collection by the Philip K. Dick of chips:
In this series of thoughtful essays and stink-eyed observations, Jonah Campbell explores food and drink in the modern world, from pig heads and whisky to fine wine and French gastronomy, Nigella Lawson to David Cronenberg, with a trail of potato chips and stale chocolate bars along the way. In the tradition of writers like M. F. K. Fisher and David Foster Wallace, Eaten Back to Life renders in delirious prose the ecstasies and absurdities that lie beneath the daily business of feeding ourselves.

Reviews

“Eaten Back to Life  distills an omnivorous appetite and intellect into easily digestible bites, offering crisp observations about cuisine and food writing that make this collection a must for the reader who likes to play with their food, conceptually, as well as eat it. ”Montreal Review of Books

“Campbell specializes in literary artisanal prose, which means it is mannered and amusing. ”Toronto Star

“If food writing today is becoming increasingly blog-like, then Campbell is leaving his self-focused compatriots in the dust. ”The Coast

“The philosophical flourishes are tempered with a clever wit and personal reflections that will challenge readers to think more deeply about their own eating experiences. ”Humber Literary Review
