Abstract:

Thirteen stories of daring and romance from a master storyteller Devenor has not had a good meal in five years. He dreams of Bucharest and the years between the wars, when he grew rich on Romanian oil, and fat on Romanian cooking. Of all the delicacies he packed into his ever-expanding belly, none were finer than those found in Gradina. It was the most decadent restaurant of the old regime, but under communism it has been thrown open to the workers, who profane its hallowed dining room with a ten-cent lunch of soup and bread. And so this portly oil magnate plots a trip behind the Iron Curtain to smuggle out Gradina & rsquo;s cook and sate his hunger evermore. Devenor is just one of the adventurers who star in the stories of this remarkable volume. From the islands of the Mediterranean to the peaks of the Andes, Geoffrey Household & rsquo;s heroes laugh at danger & mdash;but never on an empty stomach.
