Karen Dudley -- December Book Signing at McNally Robinson

Join Karen Dudley for a book signing of Food for the Gods on Sunday, December 16, 2012 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at McNally Robinson Booksellers Grant Park by the cash desk.

"Karen Dudley takes Greek mythology and gives it a wild spin. This giddy mashup of fantasy, mystery, comedy, cookbook, and self-help column is bawdy, inventive, and just plain fun."

—Sharon Shinn, author of the Twelve Houses Series

----------

Once a prince of Lydia, Pelops was chopped into stewing meat and served to the gods for tea by his not-so-loving father. Remade by the gods and blessed at the same time with a gift for the culinary arts, Pelops flees his painful memories for the bright lamps of Athens where he hopes to make a new life for himself as a celebrity chef. But then a ruthless patron takes an unhealthy interest in his career, a famous courtesan is murdered at a dinner he prepares, and a couple of the less responsible gods offer to help him make a name for himself in Athens. And Pelops begins to realize that when the gods decide they owe you a favor, you’d better start saying your prayers.
