Yes, yes, I read cookbooks cover to cover sometimes. Especially when they are as funny as this one. There are some actual usable recipes in here (umpteen ways to make chili), but many of the contributors were having too much fun writing to pay attention to the science of cooking, and I wouldn't try the Flannery O'Connor chili, for instance ("take 1 whole boneless peacock..."), which was submitted by Stewart O'Nan; nor do I think much of William Harrison's method for catching the timber rattler for camp stew (but actually, the stew sounds good!). Many of these are simply hilarious. And then there were the authors who declined to send a recipe, but ended up in the book anyway --Rita Mae Brown, who wrote "My cat, Sneaky Pie Brown, is writing a cookbook for cats, but I don't think dried mole would be appetizing." Or Dean Koontz, who declared "I cook no better than Mr. Toad drove his motor car..." I didn't actually count, but it does seem that Southern writers might be in the overwhelming majority here, which wouldn't be surprising, given that Ms. Wells lived in Oxford, MS, and was a great friend and mentor to many, many authors.
