Cider Camp by Craig Gibson

 

CIDER CAMP - The debut collection from Craig Gibson.

Grim, nasty and highly cynical, laden with gallows humour, CIDER CAMP has the power to repel and amuse in equal measure, and protrays a culture in which humanity and compassion are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. 

In the very near future a radical solution to the problem of chronic inebriation has been devised: the RCIA, known to staff and inmates alike as CIDER CAMP, and masterminded by the frighteningly right wing Professor Blackwood.

Today, over ten years later, it still has those humble few followers.

A man asleep, Rubio flees Paris for the Egyptian desert. He escapes his back-biting colleagues, the proximity of his ex-wife, and the depressions that he diagnoses daily in the medical surgery.

The city is after him, and Rubio is running for his life, running down a slope while memory rides behind, ever so gently applying the brakes.

The Supper Book is an annotated list of everything that one man ate and drank over one year.  The list is glossed, especially when the author realised the incredible natures of the many concoctions he had purchased or been served.

Everything in The Supper Book contributed to the invention of the author.  “You are what you eat” is the most common maxim that describes this process.

In The Supper Book Peter Burnett demonstrates the character and virtues of his foods and collects notices on the history and culture of many of the meals that he found it worthwhile to comment upon.
