An Imaginary Quarter of a Food-Obsessed City
Consider the Feast (Open Books, $19.95) offers a wild ride through an imaginary quarter of a food-obsessed city. Debut novelist Carmit Delman talks to Fiction Editor Yona Zeldis McDonough about how food becomes both marker and symbol for the haves and the have nots.
Yona Zeldis McDonough: Like your protagonist,Talia, you have a background that’s both Indian and Israeli. Can you describe growing up within those two cultures?
