About this title

Synopsis:

As though Martin Amis had been written by Henry Green and David Cook."" - The Times Literary Supplement. ""Savagely black comedy along Evelyn Waugh lines with its merriments even kinkier."" - The Observer. Full of dark comic invention, teasing eroticism, and culinary joie de vivre, Vinegar Soup is spicy and delectable, a fantasy with a flavor all its own about food and sex, growing up and growing old. Gilbert Firestone, fat and fifty, works in the kitchen of the Hercules Café and dreams of travel and adventure. When his wife drowns in a pan of soup he abandons the kitchen and takes his family to start a new life in a jungle hotel in Africa. And then the enormous Charlotte arrives with her brothel on wheels. An epic romance of true love, travel, and food.
