Based on its diet, what do you call a bookworm? A papervore? Our particular bookworm, Michael Silverblatt, is a carnivore with a voracious appetite for literary fiction. The host of KCRW’s Bookworm often can’t stop reading long enough to even consider cooking (microwave meals don’t count). Instead, he finds a place with delicious vittles and settles in to kill a few chapters while getting fed.
Lately, his place of choice has been Salt’s Cure. In fact, he does his reading and eating there so often that they’ve named a sandwich after him! Next time you make it in to Salt’s Cure, ask for The Bookworm — yummy ham and greens on sourdough.
