Reviews

`A fat, juicy masterpiece. Jacob, who destroys what he loves with the rapacity of his desire, is as compelling as he is appalling...Most impressively, the writing here is flawless. These pages flow like claret.' Economist `Early in the English Civil War, a body is dredged from the pond of a Royalist estate. "As Meat Loves Salt" is the testament of Jacob Cullen - homicide and fugitive. Obsessed with the graceful Christopher Ferris, he follows him to become a London printer, a Digger and, finally, an emigrant to the New World...An electrifying erotic thriller, rich in secrets and surprises.' Independent `A novel teeming with life...a triumphant piece of historical evocation. McCann's unflinching descriptions of battle are matched by the power of her depiction of London in all its fetid splendour. And in the character of Jacob himself, a strong but selfish man weakened by a violent temper and haunted by guilty dreams, McCann shows the imaginative empathy that is the hallmark of a true novelist.' Vogue `A true delight, vivid, well written and, best of all, accessible...Maria McCann's characters leap off the page and speak in contemporary voices that entirely convince.' Daily Express `An intriguing and disturbing first novel which lingers in the mind...Tense with anguish, intimacy and shame, it imaginatively re-creates the mentality of a society racked by war and intoxicated by radical new ideas of freedom and change.' TLS
