Details: Product Description ‘Extraordinary. Vivid, irreverent, heartbreaking.’ NIGEL SLATER ‘So funny and so delicious. I could eat it.’ DAWN O’PORTER ‘Delicious.’ THE OBSERVER From an early age, Grace Dent was hungry. As a little girl growing up in Currock, Carlisle, she yearned to be something bigger, to go somewhere better. Hungry traces her story from growing up eating beige food to becoming one of Britain’s best-loved food writers. It’s also everyone’s story – from cheese and pineapple hedgehogs and treats with your nan, to the exquisite joy of a chip butty covered in vinegar and too much salt in the school canteen on a grey day. And the Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut from a hospital vending machine that tells a loved one you really care. Grace’s snapshot of how we have lived, laughed and eaten over the past 40 years reveals the central role food plays in either bringing us together or driving us apart – from toasting a large glass of warm Merlot to grimly polishing off a wilted salad. Heartfelt, witty and joyous, Hungry shows us what we’ve always known to be true. Food, friends and family are the indispensable ingredients of a life well lived. Review ‘Extraordinary. Vivid, irreverent, heartbreaking.’ NIGEL SLATER ‘So funny and so delicious. I could eat it.’ DAWN O’PORTER ‘… absolutely loved it. Add to your reading list now!’ NIGELLA LAWSON ‘I stayed awake LATE to finish and honest-to-god it’s WONDERFUL! Deliciously honest about ambition, family secrets, loneliness, success, it’s all here! It’s a HUGELY engaging and satisfying read.’ MARIAN KEYES ‘Charming, readable and resonating … this is British comfort food in book form’ STYLIST ‘A moving account of family and ambition’ VOGUE ‘Full of audacious, vodka-dry humour, Hungry is also tender and touching, she writes about her father’s dementia with heartbreaking honesty.’ RED ‘Funny and poignant account of life with her father and how it shaped her relationship with food…Dent is a fine comic writer, but she is also superb on grief and the small moments of connection that offer a way through.' THE OBSERVER ‘Tender and witty, the book is both a love letter to George, whose eventual decline from dementia she recounts, and the food that brought them together.’ THE GUARDIAN About the Author Before taking up the revered role of restaurant critic for The Guardian, Grace Dent had two weekly columns in the Independent. She is a regular show guest, having appeared on Have I Got News For You, BBC2's The Review Show, Masterchef and Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe. Grace has written eleven novels for teenagers and she recently won the Guild of Food Writers' Food Writing Award 2019 for her work published in The Guardian.
