This book provides a cultural history of the lobster, exploring its place in history, science, myth, art, literature, music, movies, and, of course, cuisine. Frazier describes how the lobster lives in its natural surroundings: its food, sex life, social life, predators, and general behavior. Also includes recipes drawn from such notable lobster connoisseurs as M. F. K. Fisher, Alice B. Toklas, and Craig Claiborne, I, Lobster is a quirky, charming, and weirdly fascinating compendium of lobster lore.
