Tarquin Winot, the devious narrator of this brilliant first novel, easily draws readers who love language into his fold first with his wickedly funny and opinionated descriptions of food, wine and art as he travels through France until gradually he reveals himself!
This book takes writing about cooking and eating food to a whole new level. Although it includes recipes, they are part of the text and never seem like something separate that you could actually make. The author connects food and his consumption of it to his senses and his memories.
Very unique book.
