Be my guest
Be my guest
Basil, Priya, 1977-2019
Books
A meditation on the meaning and limits of hospitality today, from the shortlisted author of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. The dinner table, among friends, is where the best conversations take place - talk about the world, religion, politics, culture and cooking. In the same way, Be My Guest is a conversation about all those things, mediated through the sharing of food. We live in a world where some have too much and others not enough, where immigrants and refugees are both welcomed and vilified, and where most of us spend less and less time cooking and eating together. Priya Basil invites us to explore the meaning and limits of hospitality today, and in doing so makes a passionate plea for a kinder, more welcoming realisation that we have more in common than divides us.
