AUTHOR

Kurlansky, Mark

SUMMARY

"It is Kurlansky's neat trick to be both encyclopedic and diverting, to leave no grain unturned as he ties one intriguing particular to another, through time and space, keeping the reader's attention: the story of a Cellini salt cellar, Moors in sky-blue robes moving caravans of salt to Timbuktu, Gandhi starting a revolution with a pinch of salt, the pecking order of salt qualities, why some salts have color, why when it rains Morton's still pours."Kurlansky, Mark is the author of 'Salt A World History', published 2003 under ISBN 9780142001615 and ISBN 0142001619.
