about

The Club of Angels is an irresistible, enticing book about the sin of gluttony. With wit and dark humor, Verissimo tells the story of ten well-to-do men who meet every month to dine fabulously. When their leader and chef dies of AIDS, he is replaced by a mysterious, strangely taciturn cook who gives them gastronomic experiences to die for!
Margaret Jull Costa is the award-winning translator of works by Eça de Quieros, Javier Marías, and José Saramago.

Editorial Reviews

It's not just amusing: it's morbidly enthralling, like a socially acceptable snuff film.
— Daniel Kraus (Booklist)

Verissimo's joyful text, playing lightly over his mighty theme, is nothing if not witty, subtle, and nuanced.—George Monteiro, Brown University — George Monteiro (World Literature Today)
