'A Language We All Speak' : Food in Marion Halligan's Writing, Dorothy Jones , single work criticism

'Marion Halligan describes her memoir, A Taste of Memory, as a set of stories of her life in food, travel and especially gardens, those 'nourishing spaces'; but it also commemorates her husband, Graham, and their thirty-five year marriage. Food and gardens often appear as related themes in Halligan's fiction, where gardens symbolise suburban domestic space and food may be used to express both desire and social connection. This essay explores how, in A Taste of Memory and the two novels immediately preceding it, The Fog Garden and The Point, food and gardens are linked to themes of bereavement and loss.' - Kunapipi (p. 183).
