"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
