Venus in the Kitchen or Love's Cookery Book

A hardboiled team of collaborators: collected and written, barely pseudonymously, by Norman Douglas, introduction by Graham Greene, decorations by Bruce Roberts, frontispiece painting by D.H.Lawrence, acknowledgements to Faith Compton Mackenzie and Sybille Bedford for their contributions and help. Meat, fish, game, sauces, desserts, drinks (the mutton cutlets with cognac are the favourite of our packing department); a collection of recipes, all with aphrodisiacal qualities; the author's last book, 'fitting', according to Graham Greene in his introduction
