On Soup

Tonight, we’ll read excerpts from "The Feasts of Autolycus", including “On Soup” and “The Incomparable Onion”, published in 1900 and edited by Elizabeth Robins Pennell.

Pennell was an American travel writer, columnist, biographer and memoirist. Her biographies included the first in almost a century of the proto-feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, and also one of her uncle the folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland.

Coincidentally, Charles Godfrey Leland compiled the book “Algonquin Legends” that the recent Snoozecast episode “Badger the Mischief Maker” was based on.
