Literary Feasts: The Witch of Hebron

The Witch of Hebron
The Witch of Hebron by James Howard Kunstler

by James Howard Kunstler

After a hard day of brigandage, a man needs to eat!

"Put them onions there into the mush and mix them in good," Bill Bones told his protégé, Jasper Copeland, as they prepared their feast in the abandoned house on Goose Island Road. Billy had his goat-meat skewers jacked up on a couple of concrete blocks over the fire, and the meat juices dripped aromatically into the coals.

"Okay," he said, "now take them cheese crumbles and stir them in."

"Now taker her off the heat and just keep stirring until the cheese gets melty."

A good meal can take your mind off the fact that the world as you knew has ended. This book is full of good meals and food references.
