BE MY GUEST Reflections on Food, Community, and the Meaning of Generosity

by | Read by Priya Basil

Contemporary Culture • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

British author and political activist Priya Basil's crisp articulation and easy pronunciation of other languages reflect her multicultural background in this collection of insightful essays. The works consider the implications of hospitality beyond hosting guests. There is tenderness in Basil's voice as she shares vivid memories of her mother's cooking and explores the significance of food as an important expression of love and nurturing--both in the giving and receiving. Basil passionately explains that how we prepare and serve a meal, whom we eat with, and even the life of a family recipe are all important elements intertwined with our identity. A country's hospitality and the guests that accept it are also considered in Basil's penetrating observations. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, Basil's philosophical words and precise delivery invite contemplation. M.F. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
