Calvin Trillin -- who is a thank-you-god category all to himself -- on what to eat in Nova Scotia. Adam Gopnik, whose new book The Table Comes First is about food and France and lots of other related things, on Thanksgiving. Jane Kramer writes about foraging. Kelefa Sanneh on the coffee revolution. John Seabrook builds a better apple. And then, just for fun, essays by Paul Theroux, Dana Spiotta, Mohammed Naseehu Ali, Judith Thurman, and Louise Erdrich.
Something to read while you're standing in line at the market with your free-range turkey, your bags of cranberries, your NFL Thanksgiving schedule, your jugs of cider.
