"[A] maniacal little caper . . . Curiosity demands that the reader devour each page to find out exactly what the author wants to say" (Los Angeles Times).

Frank runs the Golden Boy fast-food chain, his wife, Mary, is having an affair with the chef, and his son, Virgil, modeled for the Golden Boy logo when he was a baby. All three get embroiled in the machinations of the Everlasting Club, a British organization dedicated to feasting and Dionysian activities that challenge even the most sophisticated of connoisseurs . . .

"Nicholson does not stop at the Everlasting Club, with its gastronomic and erotic excesses, but paints a witty but grizzly picture of eating gone awry. Indeed, many readers have found his portrait excessive, which suggests that he is doing something right. This is a brilliantly witty attack on excess which no one who eats should miss." The Modern Novel

"Kinky food and sex games are the stuff of this high-energy black comedy. . . . Nicholson sustains a tone of campy menace as he brings all these characters to London in a plot that zigs and zags entertainingly." Kirkus Reviews

"Nicholson's stateside debut, a dark parable of appetites carnal, commercial and culinary, sets him firmly in the contemporary British mode of savvy, morbid humor pioneered by compatriots like Martin Amis and Pete Davies." Publishers Weekly
