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, '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.'
