Overview

The Debt to Pleasure by John Lanchester, David Case

Winner of the Whitbread Award for Best First Novel and a New York Times Notable Book, The Debt to Pleasure is a wickedly funny, urbane ode to food. Traveling from Portsmouth to the south of France, Tarquin Winot, the book's impeccably correct and snobbish narrator, instructs us in his philosophy on everything from the erotics of dislike to the psychology of the menu. Under the guise of completing an altogether new sort of cookbook, Winot is in fact on a much more sinister mission that only gradually comes to light.

Author Biography: John Lanchester was formerly the deputy editor of the London Review of Books and the restaurant critic for the London Observer. He is the author of a second novel, Mr. Phillips, and his work has appeared in The New Yorker. He lives in London.
