Summary

Dark, moving and eccentric, Gentleman's Relish is Patrick Gale's second collection of subversive and exhilarating short stories.

A lonely prison governor's wife develops a sudden passion for an unexpected hobby, a cookery connoisseur suspects his homophobic father and brothers are attempting to manipulate him and looks for revenge, a grandmother offers hair-raising family tales to her abandoned grandchildren, a sex demon in an old casket gruesomely transforms a honeymooning couple.

In his second collection of short stories, Patrick Gale creates worlds where the making and breaking of relationships - between mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, lovers and strangers - offer unforgettably dark and moving twists to these utterly unpredictable lives.

Critic reviews

"The short story form suits Gale's ability to zoom in on the smallest nuances of a relationship." (Kate Saunders, The Times)
