New York Ballantine Books 1984 0345317211 / 9780345317216 Mass Market Paperback Good 

244 pp. Spine somewhat creased and rolled, some edge wear, reading crease, some creasing to front cover, one page dog-eared. Pages tanned but text is clean and unmarked.

Originally published in 1965, 'The Cook' was the basis for the Harold Prince movie "Something for Everyone", which starrred Michael York and Angela Lansbury.
"Delicious, Diabolical, Different.
"The Cook may be described as a fable of horror and delight. The sinister weapons are marvelous food, flattery and, if necessary, neatly accidental murder. It is brilliantly, beautifully written.
"Conrad is a cook of marvelous cleverness. His recipes are enchanting. They make thin people fat and fat people thin.
"Slowly, ever so slowly - just by cooking - Conrad manipulates the lives of his employers until they end up becoming his servants. And what began as a simple tale ends up a subtle but frightening study of the psychology of evil.
"An unforgettable, jewel-like masterpiece. "; 6" - 7" Tall
