As Meat Loves Salt

As Meat Loves Salt

Maria McCann

What Douglas Stuart Says: I’ve read this so many times. For historical fiction fans of Hilary Mantel or Maggie O’Farrell, it’s like a fleshy, brutal epic that reads like a Gericault painting. An immersive, 17th-century love story set at the time of the English civil war; Jacob Cullen is a disgraced soldier, a violent, possessive man who falls in love with a fellow soldier, and when he cannot have him, destroys him instead.

What They Say: “A fat, juicy masterpiece” – Economist
