Consider the top image. A plate of chick peas and plain spaghetti, accompanied—we can only assume—by the mournful, haunting wail of a conch.

Based on the popular Tumblr, this book features never-before-seen photographs of humanity at its lowest culinary ebb, accompanied by tragicomic stories that will either leave you crying with laughter, or just crying. You'll meet a cast of colorless characters trapped in a kitchen hell of their own devising, witness their struggles to fulfill their recommended five a day, and marvel at how much human misery can be heaped onto a single plate. Fuelled by the author's first-hand experience at the dark heart of miserable food photography, Dimly Lit Meals for One is the culmination of one man's quest to chronicle the exact opposite of food porn. Bigger, sadder, and funnier than ever before, this book serves up bite-sized portions of hilarity and heartbreak alongside some of the most inept food photography ever seen.
