On the Menu

In Christopher Reid’s new book, Mr Mouth (Ondt & Gracehoper), the protagonist finds, on the menu of a greasy spoon café, something called ‘spaghetti bongolese’.

Am debating whether that tops my previous favourite restaurant trouvaille, 'aubergine stuffed by a nut.'

Ondt & Gracehoper? Ondt & Gracehoper?! Impossible!

O&G is a press Christopher Reid has used over the years for his between-Faber-books books, as well as his writing for children. It doesn't have a web presence, as far as I can make out, and I don't know that it publishes work by anyone else either. Those anxious to 'commence insects' with him can mail me back-channel and I'll pass on the contact details.
