For all you writers here who want something slightly different when procrastinating …
Mark Crick wrote a great little book called Kafka’s Soup “A Complete History of Literature in 17 Recipes”, written in different author’s styles, all the way from Homer (not Simpson! ) to Steinbeck and Raymond Chandler.
But as an immediate taster, if you can’t lay your hands on the book quickly, the website:
in “Listen” has recordings of Mark Crick reading Miso Soup à la Franz Kafka and Tiramisú à la Marcel Proust, and the actress Annie Sedgwick reading Tarragon Eggs à la Jane Austen. Have a listen, they’re great fun.
Non-disclaimer — the website is that of my wife and a friend of hers, and I do have a hand in it … but absolutely minimal in this instance.
PS: Mark Crick has written similar volumes on gardening, DIY, etc., but neither of us have read any of them.
