In the Land of the Magic Pudding is a fabulous potpourri of popular writing by our top writers, on the theme of Australian cooking and eating, the vital ingredient being the entertaining quality of the prose. Through fiction, journalism, books of etiquette, letters, diaries and travel accounts, the anthology presents wonderful reading fodder from the eighteenth century (when Joseph Banks recorded his experiences of eating indigenous foods) to the present day. Contributors include D.H. Lawrence, Miles Franklin, Marcus Clarke, Patrick White, Frank Moorhouse and Hsu-Ming Teo.
