The Devil's Larder

3.81 based on 483 ratings & 38 reviews on Goodreads.com

The Devil's Larder is a novel in sixty-four parts, exploring our deepest human concerns - love, hate, hopes and desires - through our relationship with food. Packed with delightful and subversive ingredients, with behaviour more suited to the bedroom than to the table, and with the most curious and idosyncratic of diners, this is a sensuous portrait of a community where meals are served with lashings of passion and recipes come spiced with unexpected challenges and hopes.

'Delicious . . . the sheer quantity of inventiveness is astounding' Mail on Sunday

'Funny, frightening and erotic' The Times
