Description

Addresses consumption of food, drink, and drugs in the conspicuously consuming 19th century in order to explore the question of what, in fact, makes a man in novels of the period. This book analyzes the rituals of dining room, opium den, and cocaine lab and the ways in which these alimentary behaviors make, unmake, and remake the gentlemanly body.
