Kafka's Soup : A Complete History of Literature in 14 Recipes
Kafka's Soup covers 14 writers, giving recipes written in each of their styles to keep the reader so entertained in the kitchen that they will be sorry when the guests arrive. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to prepare dinner with Graham Greene, Marcel Proust or Raymond Chandler, this is the perfect book for you. Illustrated by the author, the book will make a great gift for bibliophiles. Anybody who prefers their recipes to be a simple list of foolproof instructions should stay away. Writers covered: Homer, Chaucer, Jane Austen, Raymond Chandler, Graham Greene, Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, John Steinbeck, The Marquis de Sade, Marcel Proust, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, Irvine Welsh, Harold Pinter.

Our customer reviews
A fun little book of stories/poems/plays, each a recipe, and each written in the voice of a different author (e.g., tarragon eggs à la Jane Austen, mushroom risotto à la John Steinbeck, and Vietnamese chicken à la Graham Greene). Includes illustrations by the author. Not something to read more than once, perhaps, but clever and fun nonetheless.show moreby Steve Gump
