'I was hungry...I thought about a baked bean sandwich with mayo on anadama bread. I thought about corned beef hash with eggs. I thought about linguini with meatballs. (paragraph) I wondered why I never thought about fois gras, or roast guinea hen, or duck with olives. I wondered if everyone was like that or was it because I was plebian. Probably because I was plebian. Maybe if you were more cultured you thought about Dover sole when you were hungry." Robert B. Parker, Now And Then.

    Parkers "Spenser" series is being continued after his death by Ace Atkins. The spirit remains the same, including his digressions about food.
