Season to Taste Synopsis

Always let the meat rest under foil for at least ten minutes before carving...Meet Lizzie Prain. Ordinary housewife. Fifty-something. Lives in a cottage in the woods, with her dog Rita. Likes cooking, avoids the neighbours. Runs a little business making cakes. No one has seen Lizzie's husband, Jacob, for a few days. That's because last Monday, on impulse, Lizzie caved in the back of his head with a spade. And if she's going to embark on the new life she feels she deserves after thirty years in Jacob's shadow, she needs to dispose of his body Her method appeals to all her practical instincts, though it's not for the faint hearted. Will Lizzie have the strength to follow it through? Funny, subversive and achingly human, Season to Taste is the extraordinary story of the end of a marriage and its very strange aftermath. In the shape of Lizzie Prain, Natalie Young has created one of the most remarkable heroines in recent fiction.

Season to Taste Press Reviews

'Season to Taste is written in a laconic, pared-down style that immediately brings to mind Camus' - L'Etranger.

'If that seems a somewhat grand comparison, it is not, for Young's book is one of those rare beasts - a literary novel of ideas written in simple language that could be both a university set text and a supermarket bestseller'
Tom Tivnan, The Bookseller


'Set to be one of the most talked about - and most gruesome - books of 2014'

The Sunday Times


'The Next 50 Shades of Grey? Tale of Cannibal Housewife Tipped as New Year Bestseller' International Business News


'Young delivers an authentic portrait of a neglected marriage, and her light and compelling prose carries this macabre tale along' The List


'Set to be one of the most talked-about books of the year' - Daily Mail
