9780007313464: Gentleman's Relish

A father makes an unexpected discovery about his son which is too hard for him to cope with. A son wreaks revenge through the power of cookery. A bored wife finds happiness when an old lag teaches her the art of angling. A dog-training lesson with a puppy who hasn't grasped the meaning of 'obedience' leads to the discovery of a murder. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.

About the Author:

Patrick Gale was born on the Isle of Wight in 1962. He spent his infancy at Wandsworth Prison, which his father governed, then grew up in Winchester. He now lives on a farm near Land's End. His sixteen novels include The Whole Day Through, the Richard & Judy bestseller Notes From an Exhibition and his most recent, A Perfectly Good Man. You can find out more on his website www.galewarning.org.

Review:

"Pascal pinpointed the art of short-story writing when he said 'I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead'. No one demonstrates this better than Gale, whose thoroughly English stories about dog shows, church concerts, nervous spinsters, fly fishing and murder are deceptively low-key... but never dull." Sue Arnold, The Guardian (audiobook review) "Gentleman's Relish is a hugely enjoyable collection which proves that the short story is still very much alive." The Daily Express"

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An exhilarating new collection of stories by the author of Richard Judy-bestseller Notes from an Exhibition , combining wit and poignancy to illuminate experiences both common and uncommon. Love (and loathing) within families is dissected - a father makes an unexpected discovery about his son which is too hard for him to cope with. A son wreaks revenge through the power of cookery. Three generations of the same family gain freedom through the years in a once-despised caravan. A bored wife finds happiness when an old lag teaches her the art of angling. A dog-training lesson with a puppy who hasn t grasped the meaning of obedience leads to the discovery of a murder. Here too are music and silence - the sweetness and sadness of festivals, of the Church and of the control exercised by those in charge in small communities. This tremendously enjoyable collection of stories has the same wit, tenderness and acute psychological observation as Gale s bestselling novels, including NOTES FROM AN EXHIBITION and the recent THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH. For Gale s many fans, GENTLEMAN S RELISH is certain to be a real treat. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780007313464
