Like food itself, these essays in NOMFICTION are comforting and challenging. They are also, by turns, scrumptious and gruesome and sad and queasy-making. They show us the many different things that sustain us in addition to food—love and hope and joy and anger and sometimes even grief. Each essay, in its way, is a reminder of what it means to be alive.
