'Much of this book seems grotesque, but don't be fooled into thinking it's not real ... each time you think you've reached the limits of this thought-provoking and brilliant novel, it just gets deeper' Scarlett Thomas, Guardian. * Guardian *
'Reminds us just how exciting it is to read a wonderful and original novel' Lloyd Jones, author of Mister Pip. * Lloyd Jones *
'A riot of a novel. Gripping and subversive' Nick Cave. * Nick Cave *

“Excellent - subversive with a unique voice”
Thoroughly absorbing. I loved how Zac's language was affected by his studies - becoming more colourful and culinary as the book progresses.
Be warned: the book can be shocking and is not just for foodies!
