Food and sex. Hunger and the psyche. These are the forces that shape our lives. 
Bunny Crumpacker has looked at food from every angle, and brings us delicious stories about what others have done and said about eating---and about making love. This is a book you can go back to again and again and keep finding more delights---including uncharacteristic comments from the famous and insightful chuckles from the author herself. 
It’s both a banquet and a late-night nosh. Taste it, devour it, and enjoy!
