Saki (H.H. Munro), Jack London, Anton Chekhov, Stephen Leacock, Zona Gale, O. Henry, August Nemo: 7 best short stories - Food
Eating is more than just feeding the body. The time for a meal is the time to unite the community around a table and share. The taste of food can evoke feelings and memories such as longing, joy and contemplation. Knowing this, writers have always used food as a subject in their works, to metaphorize feelings and thoughts.
