Author Visit w/ Crystal King

Set amongst the scandal, wealth, and upstairs-downstairs politics of a Roman family, this “addictively readable first novel” (Kirkus Reviews) features the man who inspired the world’s oldest cookbook and the ambition that led to his destruction.  “A gastronomical delight” (Associated Press), Feast of Sorrow is a vibrant novel, replete with love and betrayal, politics and intrigue, and sumptuous feasts that bring ancient Rome to life.

UPDATE: Crystal will be also be talking about her new book The Chef's Secret, "a captivating novel inspired by the life of Bartolemeo Scappi, private chef to the Vatican--captuging the power, the intrigue, and most important, the food of Renaissance Italy."

Crystal will cover food in Renaissance Italy and today, blending fact and fiction, and historical Italian cookbooks.

Copies of her books will be available for signing and purchase. Supported by the Friends of the Boxford Library.

Wednesday Morning Book Discussion

Join us as we discuss Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.

Martha’s Vineyard. A private plane. A few rich passengers boarding. A foggy night. Uh-oh.

And a spine-tingling bit of foreshadowing: Two weeks later, one passenger will be giving an interview about the plane to New York magazine. Why? These are cosseted, secretive people. Their travels aren’t supposed to make news.

This is how Noah Hawley kicks off his ingeniously nerve-racking “Before the Fall.” If you didn’t already know that Mr. Hawley is a celebrated storyteller, you’ll know it before you finish the first page of this novel, his fifth. If his books are relatively little known, blame that on his television and film work: He is currently the showrunner for “Fargo,” a TV adaptation so good it has won a Peabody award. Before that, he created “My Generation” and “The Unusuals.” He has plans to adapt Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle” for the big screen. Special prize to anyone who can guess which other novel Mr. Hawley has said he thinks has excellent movie potential.

But “Before the Fall” has hardly been written as a pre-screenplay. This is one of the year’s best suspense novels, a mesmerizing, surprise-jammed mystery that works purely on its own, character-driven terms. (From the NYTimes book review)
