In a medieval cookbook in a special-collections library,
near-future London, jaded food and drink authority Nick Kippax
finds an alluring stain next to a recipe for the mythical
crandolin. He tastes it, ravishing the page. Then he
disappears...So begins an 'adwentour' that quantum-leapfrogs from
Central Asia in the Middle Ages to Russia under Gorbachev, from the
secrets of confectionery to the agonies of making a truly great
moustache, from maidens in towers to tiffs between cosmic forces.
Food, music, science, fruitloopery, superstition, railways,
bladder-pipes and birth-marked Soviet statesmen; all are present in
an extraordinary novel that is truly 'for the adwentoursomme'.
