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.

Jonah Campbell lives in Montreal, QC. He divides his time between food, drink, and research with the Social Studies of Medicine unit at McGill University. He also pours wine. His work has appeared in the National Post, Harper's, VICE, and Cult MTL. Eaten Back To Life is his second book, following Food and Trembling (Invisible, 2011).
