Nerds of a Feather review Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef

We do love a good review, especially when it seems to understand what a book was driving at.

And so it was with Nerds of a Feather’s review of Cassandra Khaw’s really quite brilliant Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef, a title that came to us via our open subs month and which has made us feel all warm and happy inside. And a little bit wrong, of course, because that’s how we like it. 

So, why not go and have a read of the review – which calls Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef “fun and funny and charming, but it is also subversive as hell and exquisitely pointed,” – and then come back here and buy it. You know you want to really…

Happy publication day Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef

Hey you! Fancy reading a superb debut novella by a brilliant author? Why are we even asking – of course you bloody well do. Which is convenient, as Rupert Wong: Cannibal Chef, by the most excellent Cassandra Khaw, is out today.

But what’s it all about, eh? Let us hit you with a synopsis:

It’s not unusual to work two jobs in this day and age, but sorcerer and former triad soldier Rupert Wong’s life is more complicated than most. By day, he makes human hors d’oeuvres for a dynasty of ghouls; by night, he pushes pencils for the Ten Chinese Hells. Of course, it never seems to be enough to buy him a new car—or his restless, flesh-eating-ghost girlfriend passage from the reincarnation cycle—until opportunity comes smashing through his window.

In Kuala Lumpur, where deities from a handful of major faiths tip-toe around each other and damned souls number in the millions, it’s important to tread carefully. Now the Dragon King of the South wants to throw Rupert right in it. The ocean god’s daughter and her once-mortal husband have been murdered, leaving a single clue: bloodied feathers from the Greek furies. It’s a clue that could start a war between pantheons, and Rupert’s stuck in the middle. Success promises wealth, power and freedom, and failure… doesn’t.

Cassandra has been all over the internet talking about interesting things – you really should check out the following blogs:

It’s all really rather wonderful isn’t it? So you’d better go and buy the book now, hadn’t you?

Go, go, go!
