This edition has an introduction by James Salter
This Modern Library edition has an introduction by James Salter, another author intoxicated by France. Salter writes, "Many things first came into my life or at least into my awareness when I read [Liebling's] New Yorker articles: de Segonzac, vermouth cassis, Grands-Echezeaux, brandade de morue. Other things I already knew or had read elsewhere but Liebling confirmed them and he is someone you trust."
