Description
Just because they have deep thoughts and singular perspectives on the human condition doesn't mean that the great writers of literature don't occasionally have to throw a dinner party, caulk a bathtub, or trim a hedge. This omnibus collects three obscure yet vital entries in the Western canon, Kafka's Soup, Sartre's Sink, and Machiavelli's Lawn, which together assemble more than 40 recipes, do-it-yourself tips, and bits of gardening advice from classic authors, via the linguistic ventriloquism of Mark Crick. Where else would one learn how Raymond Chandler makes Lamb with Dill Sauce, how Hunter S. Thompson would build a garden fence, or how Mary Shelley would propagate a vine?
