THE UPSTAIRS DELICATESSEN On Eating, Reading, Reading About Eating, and Eating While Reading

by | Read by Christopher P. Brown

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Christopher Brown uses the voice of a confidant for this cornucopia of pleasures--literary and gustatory. He immerses listeners in the world of protean NEW YORK TIMES book critic Dwight Garner. For a text crammed with words, quotes, and anecdotes about food and literature, Brown takes on a conversational style and uses occasional slight accents to identify the countries of origin of some of the foods discussed. He deftly switches to a slightly softer tone when quoting women. This audiobook is rich with literary figures and family members whose food opinions the author shares. They range from George Orwell on tea to his memory of his dad's peanut butter and pickle sandwich. Listening to this audiobook is mouthwatering and mind-expanding.
