Cooking with Fernet Branca by James Hamilton-Paterson

$14.95 * Fiction / Paperback * Europa Editions ISBN: 193337201x

Stefan says:

“A witty, hysterical romp through the Tuscan countryside, in the company of expatriate neighbors Gerald, an uppity Brit, an avant-garde gastronome, and Marta, an ex-Soviet film composer with familial ties to the, well, ex-Soviet mafia. The Fernet Branca of the title, a wickedly foul tasting bottled apocalypse, sets quite a bit of the plot into tipsy motion.”
