In the end, the novel’s finest moments are not in its grander ambitions, but rather in the singular way that Hannaham can make the commonplace spring to life with nothing more than astute observation and precise language.

DELICIOUS FOODS is an allegory and a satire that takes classic slave narratives, hundreds of years of American racism and contemporary socio-cultural issues, and turns them all upside down, creating a riveting, harrowing and brilliant novel.
