Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband, Paperback / softback Book

Season to Taste or How to Eat Your Husband Paperback / softback


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.
