An actual usable cookbook by novelist/essayist Caroline Blackwood (wife of poet Robert Lowell) & Anna Haycraft (writer Alice Thomas Ellis) - amusing for its quotations and contributions from restauranteurs and famous authors from Barbara Cartland to Quentin Crisp.

The blurb describes this as a 'wickedly dark comedy' which examines the lives of oddball outsiders. When I finished the book, I thought "What was that?". I didn't find anything comedic (dark or otherwise) in this novel (or more realistically, novella) The only relatable character was the cat!

I give this book 5 stars not because it is Literature with a capital L but because it succeeds in being a work of comic genius. From the very first page we are made acquainted with a cast of eccentric characters who have been antagonizing each other in small ways for years. If you like Muriel Spark you will like this, which is equally roughly told, but with more whimsy. The ending is disappointing, yes, but not ruiniously so. This is a book that can be read in one sitting, and once you get started you will have very little reason to stop reading. Delightfuly wicked!… (más)
