Cathy Gowdie contends that 'for many novelists ... food gives depth as well as colour to scenes and characters. What people choose to eat offers clues to other appetites and longings.' Gowdie illustrates her argument with reference to several novels including Christos Tsiolkas's The Slap, Cristina Stead's The Man Who Loved Children and George Johnston's My Brother Jack.
