The Devil's Larder

by Jim Crace

Wicked and witty short stories, all on the theme of food - food as temptation, food as bribery, food that satisfies, food that poisons. From feast to famine and back again, I enjoyed their sheer variety and inventiveness. Contains maybe the shortest short story ever (two words)?


Finally, furious with herself, exasperated by her girls, she made a pizza and scored an angry face into the cheese topping with the handle of a knife. And just to show her, the daughters ate it, every crumb. Eating mother's anger was good fun.
