Oh, my dear lord, I love this woman! From just the little lit analysis I did in college, I know the mindset you get into, analyzing everything through the lens of literary composition. And Gelber has famous writers analyzing food through the lens of their own particular styles.
You know one of my mottos: Everything is about writing. In “Restaurant Reviews by MFA Students,” Gelber has taken that stance to a hilariously absurd extreme.
THANK YOU, Jay, for Deal Me In! If not for this short story reading challenge, I would never have discovered Sue D. Gelber, William Trevor, or that I love Chekhov (Anton, not Ensign Pavel; I already knew I loved the latter).
p.s. Bonus points if you know another of my mottoes.
