Gerald Semper Novels by Hamilton-Paterson, James

Gerald Semper Novels

Hamilton-Paterson, James

Three volumes: Cooking With Fernet Branca, Amazing Disgrace (this copy signed by the author), and Rancid Pansies - the complete set to date. Gerald Semper - English expatriate, new owner in Italy's Apuan Alps, ghost writer of celebrities' autobiographies, cook of some repute; or, as Michael Dibdin noted re Cooking With Fernet Branca, and sustained through the three volumes, 'Anyone who does not add this hilarious divertimento to their summer reading list should be put on a forced diet of Gerald's inimitable Alien Pie, consuming which, he tells us, is 'one of those experiences poised exquisitely between sorrow and oblivion'. I cannot reveal all the ingredients without spoiling the end of the book - not to mention your appetite - but smoked cat and paraffin are among them.'
