Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paperback edition of one of the most talked about hardbacks of 1996, widely acknowledged as a first novel of rare and remarkable quality. Tarquin Winot unfolds his autobiography through a series of seasonal menus, recipes and urbane culinary anecdotes, gradually revealing more about himself and the series of unfortunate "accidents" that all close to him have unaccountably met with.

Synopsis:

Draws the reader, through descriptions of food and cooking, into a world of murder and art. Narrated by Tarquin, an ironist, epicurean and a snob, this novel is constructed around a series of seasonal menus, which unfold his autobiography.
