The Devil's Larder

The Devil's Larder

Jim Crace

A literary feast of sheer imagination and indulgence, from the Booker-shortlisted author of Quarantine.

One night when there are guests and all the wine has gone, they put the can into the candlelight amongst the debris of their meal and play the guessing game. An aphrodisiac. perhaps; "Let’s try . ." ’

Bursting with delightfully subversive ingredients and mischievous behaviour, The Devil’s Larder is a sensuous portrait — in sixty-four parts — of a community in which meals cater not for taste buds but to satisfy the imagination This is a book about our loves. and hates, our appetites and desires, rendered with startling beauty and devilish invention.
