What is Paul Levy reading?

The latest contributor to Writers Read: Paul Levy, a broadcaster and expert writer on food & wine and the arts.

According to one capsule biography: "With Ann Barr (and synchronically Gael Greene), [Levy] coined the word 'foodie' (and some say, exemplified the concept). He has won many British and American food writing and journalism prizes, including two commendations in the national British Press Awards, in 1985 and 1987."

Levy's entry includes several books for foodies, a couple for Wagner fans, and several novels ... including one that he didn't much care for. Read on.

Levy's most recent book is The Letters of Lytton Strachey, which he edited for Farrar Straus Giroux and Penguin.
