"The story begins in the ancient Greece of myth, where King Meleager of Kalydon has assembled the sixty greates hunters and one huntress, Atalanta to rid his realm of the supernatural boar sent by the vengeful goddess Artemis to lay waste to his lands.

Das Festmahl des John Saturnall Roman by Lawrence Norfolk( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and held by 15 libraries worldwide
Lasst das Fest beginnen! Vor 20 Jahren erschien "Lemprière's Wörterbuch" und machte Lawrence Norfolk über Nacht zum Star der internationalen Literaturszene. Nun legt er nach langem Schweigen einen neuen, grandiosen Roman vor. In ihm erzählt er die Geschichte eines Waisen, der im 17. Jahrhundert zum bedeutendsten Koch seiner Epoche wird - ein Fest für die Sinne und den Intellekt. England im 17. Jahrhundert. Als John seine Mutter verliert, hat er als Sohn einer angeblichen Hexe nur eine Chance, den Religionsfanatikern zu entkommen: Er muss seine vertraute Umgebung verlassen und das Herrenhaus von Buckland erreichen. Hier werden er und das von seiner Mutter überlieferte geheime Wissen um Pflanzen und Rezepte sicher sein. In Buckland steigt John vom Küchenjungen schnell zum Koch auf. Er versteht es, Lucretia, die verwöhnte Tochter von Sir William, mit seinen Kochkünsten zu betören. Aber Krieg und Standesunterschiede lassen kaum Platz für die Liebe zwischen dem berühmtesten Koch des Landes und der Lady von Buckland. Lawrence Norfolk zeigt sein Liebespaar inmitten eines von politischen und religiösen Kämpfen zerrissenen Landes. Johns magische Rezepte und seine Geschichten aus jener Zeit, als Frauen und Männer, Herren und Knechte frei, gleich und glücklich ein sinnliches Fest feierten, sind wie ein Versprechen und schützen ihre Liebe vor Fanatismus, Gewalt und Verzweiflung. Lawrence Norfolk gelang gleich mit seinem ersten Roman 'Lemprière's Wörterbuch' ein internationaler Bestseller. Das Buch wurde in über 30 Sprachen übersetzt und gewann den Somerset Maugham Award. Zwei weitere, von der Kritik hoch gelobte Romane folgten. Der Autor, geboren 1963, verbrachte einen Teil seiner Kindheit im Irak. Nach seinem Studium am King's College arbeitete er als Journalist und Schriftsteller. Heute lebt er mit seiner Familie in London
