I thought I should mention that anyone interested in the WPA files on
American food should also check out the brand new 2009 volume:
The Food of a Younger Land: A Portrait of American Food--Before the
National Highway System, Before Chain Restaurants, and Before Frozen
Food, When the Nation's Food Was Seasonal by Mark Kurlansky.
He's the author of Cod, Salt, etc.
416 pages; Riverhead Hardcover (May 14, 2009)
It's available in bookstores right now so you can check it out in person.
Nelson Algren's writings were also published in a University of Iowa
Press volume titled oddly enough America Eats (Iowa Szathmary Culinary
123 pages; Univ of Iowa Pr (May 1992)
This one will have to be interlibrary loaned as copies are scarce and
