"A novel of quiet pleasures, with a perplexed hero who always rings true." Mail on Sunday "Her descriptions of Gabe's disassociated states are excellent...this is an ambitious book from a writer not content to revisit familiar territory...Serious and intelligent." Independent "Ali's strengths lie in a cool authorial distance, and a passion for detail" The Times "A compelling story..Ali is second to none when it comes to capturing modes of speech...Monica Ali is shaping up to be a fine novelist" Sunday Express "The kitchen of the title is the Imperial Hotel in central London, and Ali's dazzling accounts of its manic goings-on make the chef Anthony Bourdain's gory memoir, Kitchen Confidential, seem as genteel as Fanny Cradock." Sunday Times
