“Perfect weekend reading”
Sir Ian McKellen, The Times
A true tale of how a sunken soufflé came to reveal a festering quagmire of corruption and bigotry in genteel Bath in 1831. What starts out as a culinary catastrophe quickly becomes a matter of life and death.
- As narrated by William Keeling Esq.
- Based on the Archives of his uncle, the late Dr W.B. Keeling of Gay Street
