Foodie's manias



  Guidebook to the contemporary gastonomic psychopathology

Nowadays we are all foodies, in other words food enthusiasts, who talk about it, who write about it, who cook it, who bustle about in the kitchen and those who eat it and nothing else. Ironically the author examines a global phenomenon, offering the picture of the different typologies and the descriptions of their nervous tics. A kind of psychoanalysis of foodie’s everyday life that is combined with quotes, anecdotes and historical information. Everyone can identify with one or more of the characters drawn from this modern human comedy.
