By Martha Rosler (1978)


A reprint of the 70s classic. “A Budding Gourmet”, “McTowers Maid,” and “Tijuana Maid”: three short novels address the social uses of food (the third told in both Spanish and English). Originally a mail art project, the stories were serialized and sent to potential readers on postcards.
