Sweets: A History of Candy
Tim Richardson (au)
Tim Richardson takes us on a magical confectionery tour through time & space, letting his personal passion fuel the narrative of candy’s rich & unusual history. Beginning with a description of the biology of sweetness itself, Richardson navigates the ancient history of sweets, the incredible range & diversity of candies around the world, the bizarre figures & practices of the confectionery industry, & the connection between sweets & sex. He goes on to explore the role of sweets in myth & folklore, & finally delivers a personal philosophical justification for continual sweet-eating based on the writings of Epicurus. “Confectionary sales always increase in times of national unease.” A delicious blend of anecdote, history, & investigative reporting.
