Primordial Soup

Author: Christine Leunens

Cover design: Marie Lane   Cover illustration: Tanguy de Montesson, Tiphaine de Rouge  

A light zany comic novel with an unforgettable ending. It is is an archetypal Dedalus novel: brilliant, witty, bizarre and totally unique.

Adolescence creates in Kate a hunger which she can't explain and which transforms her hatred of meat into desire. At college she embraces religion, but her biblical studies lead her into seeing the world as a vast meat stew, a primordial soup of ever changing ingredients. Sex seems to offer salvation until she combines it with her hunger for meat.

A growing-up novel with a mother from hell, it will make readers thankful that they were spared Kate Lester's trials and tribulations.
