Baking and Bakers in Literature
One of my blog readers recently alerted me to a Raymond Carver short story featuring a baker: A Small, Good Thing
Very moving conclusion. Recommended reading for anyone here, given our interest in bread and baking. (NB: Apparently this story was included in an adapted form in the Altman movie, Short Cuts, which I saw years ago...but badly in need of a cerebral RAM upgrade, as I can't bring any such segment to mind!).
In an ensuing email discussion, this reader pondered whether there are many other literary works featuring bakers or baking. I'm sure there must be, and with a literature background I should be able to identify at least some, but again, I can't bring any to mind! Thought I would put a call out to TFL participants for some help.
So, any more works come to mind, folks?
