9781472209399: Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband

Always let the meat rest under foil for at least ten minutes before carving...Meet Lizzie Prain. Ordinary housewife. Fifty-something. Lives in a cottage in the woods, with her dog Rita. Likes cooking, avoids the neighbours. Runs a little business making cakes. No one has seen Lizzie's husband, Jacob, for a few days. That's because last Monday, on impulse, Lizzie caved in the back of his head with a spade. And if she's going to embark on the new life she feels she deserves after thirty years in Jacob's shadow, she needs to dispose of his body. Her method appeals to all her practical instincts, though it's not for the faint-hearted. Will Lizzie have the strength to follow it through? Dark, funny and achingly human, Season to Taste is a deliciously subversive treat. In the shape of Lizzie Prain, Natalie Young has created one of the most remarkable heroines in recent fiction.

About the Author:

Natalie Young was born in London in 1976. She studied English at Bristol University and published her first novel, We All Ran Into the Sunlight, in 2011 while working as the Arts and Books Editor of Prospect Magazine. For several years before that she bought books for serialisation in The Times and contributed regularly to the Books section and to the Saturday Review. Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband was published to great critical acclaim and commercial success in the UK in 2014 and has sold into a further seven foreign territories. Natalie is now writing the screenplay for Season to Taste while also working on her third novel as part of a Creative Writing PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London. She lives in London with her two children.

Review:

A stomach-turning and terrific novel...a brilliant and literal dissection of a marriage The Times Engrossingly depicts not only bodily appetite but the deepest emotional hunger pangs of being human...compulsively readable Observer Daring, groundbreaking and original Irish Independent One of the most talked-about books of the year...filled with black humour Daily Mail An enjoyable feast of anger - witty and poised -- Deborah Levy, author of Swimming Home 'Season to Taste is written in a laconic, pared-down style that immediately brings to mind Camus' L'Etranger. If that seems a somewhat grand comparison, it is not, for Young's book is one of those rare beasts - a literary novel of ideas written in simple language that could be both a university set text and a supermarket bestseller' -- Tom Tivnan, The Bookseller Set to be one of the most talked about - and most gruesome - books of 2014 The Sunday Times Young delivers an authentic portrait of a neglected marriage, and her light and compelling prose carries this macabre tale along The List Season to Taste is a modern-day fable about the end of love and moving on. Natalie Young has given us a shockingly, thrillingly new vantage on a timeless story of marriage's demise -- Stefan Merill Block, author of The Story of Forgetting 2014's most talked-about novel Harper's Bazaar 'Brilliantly disturbing... echoes of Roald Dahl's dark adult fiction... fascinating in the most gruesome way. Delicious!' Image Move over Fifty Shades, there's a brand new genre whipping the publishing world into a murderous frenzy Evening Standard
