Fictitious Dishes: 5 Meals From Literature

Photographer Dinah Fried imagines 5 literary meals

Graphic designer and photographer Dinah Fried imagines what it would be like to share a meal with five iconic fiction characters — Holden Caulfield, Ishmael (you can call him that), Lisbeth Salander, Oliver Twist, and Alice. Can you guess what book each meal is from?

Fried is currently pursuing an MFA at Rhode Island School of Design after graduating from Tufts University. Much of her work concerns books and literary forms of representation. She is now working on her thesis called Novel Reading.
