The Food Memoir: Tales of Family and Culture

An Increasingly popular subgenre of autobiography, a form of
autobiography that Paul John Eakin calls the "relational life story,"
the food memoir (by M.F.K. Fisher, Leslie Li, and Ruth Reichl, for
example) intertwines narratives of family life, travel, and
cross-cultural experiences with recipes and the author's representation
of an evolving self. Essays about published memoirs of 7 to 8 pages or
250-word abstracts are welcome.

Thanks very much.
