The Hungry Student, Prose: non-fiction, Cookery / food & drink etc

The first collection of food writing by Britain's funniest and most feared critic.

Food writing by Britain's funniest and most feared critic.

This collection of incisive observations on food, restaurants and the culture of eating consists of pieces that belie A.A Gill's reputation as a mere style journalist and master of vitriol.

His writing is of the highest quality and will appeal to anyone who is interested in eating and great comic writing.

Praise for Table Talk

  • Certainly a book that whets the appetite and an ideal Christmas present for the foodie in your life. - DUBLIN EVENING HERALD - Tom Galvin

  • Infuriating and funny in equal measure, but always delectably readable. - BIG ISSUE (Scotland)

  • At his best, Gill shows how real insight into a culture can be gleaned from the manner in which its food is produced, distributed, prepared and consumed. - NEW STATESMAN - Matthew Taunton
