Counterpart to Alison Knowles’ Journal of the Identical Lunch.
In the late sixties, Philip Corner noticed his friend Alison Knowles
ate the same lunch every day: "a tuna fish sandwich
on wheat toast with butter and lettuce, no mayo, and
a glass of buttermilk or a cup of soup," leading the artist
to turn her dining habits into a performance. She did this
by inviting friends to join her at a local diner, to experience
the same lunch as her, and to write about their experiences...
This book is Corner's own take on the lunch, using Knowles'
original piece as a 'score'.
