When Food Meets Literature

I enjoy food, as many of you do. I also enjoy writing about food-related experiences, such as dining at restaurants. I’m a confirmed Urbanspoon addict. (Don’t tell my mother, please.) I also use Yelp and other user-review sites to help me choose where to spend my precious dining dollars. Although there are some abuses, I think these sites help a lot of people make better, more informed choices.

Cormac McCarthy is a modern writer of literature-quality novels, among other things. Examples include The Road, No Country for Old Men, and Child of God. He suffers from something a lot of us budding writers don’t have yet: Style. A thoroughly recognizable writing style, that is. So distinguishable is Cormac’s style that he is occasionally the target of parody and spoof.

What happens when you combine the two? Visit Yelping With Cormac to see. It’s a hoot. I’d quote the best line from there, but it’s 192 words long, all one sentence…
