From Willy Wonka to Ferrero Rocher, chocolate is embedded in our culture as perhaps no other foodstuff. And although it has been swooned over endlessly in print, "Indulgence" takes the subject to entirely new realms. In a pleasurable melange of travel narrative, historical writing, and literary gastronomy, Paul Richardson discovers a substance that still has much to say about the joys and agonies of our human debt to pleasure. In this whimsical chronicle of one of mankind's ruling passions, he concludes that chocolate has lost none of its mysterious capacity to bewitch.
