Seven Sweet Things is a sumptuous and deeply personal tale of love and appetite. Two men in London meet in an Internet chatroom and fall deeper into love than either could have imagined. The story is as much an exploration of the city as it is a meditation on love. Shifting between hidden archaeological mysteries in London and a fantastical stay in an old house in Yorkshire, and between Clissold Park in North London and Roslyn Glen in Scotland, where the narrator gets invited to prepare extravagant desserts for an aristocratic family, the landscape is always love. Seven Sweet Things is a reminder that each time we fall in love, we re-invent our codes, our values, and our sources of inspiration. This edition of Levin’s debut novella includes a Prologue written especially for this publication. In the tradition of Laura Esquival’s Like Water for Chocolate, Seven Sweet Things is the first gay love story with recipes for cakes or desserts to complement each chapter. A sumptuous and deeply personal tale. Time Out magazine (London) said: “Lots of food, and lots of sex, interweaving seamlessly,… passionately, powerfully told… In every chapter there is a moment to take your breath away with its simplicity, its originality, its honesty.” The Lambda Book Report said: “…a meticulously crafted book… highly decadent and erotic…” “a luscious and kinky exploration of queer heart and desire. Soulful and sexy, it invites us inside our sweet, sticky spaces where desire and dessert hit head-on. Full of gorgeous writing, seductive recipes and open-eyed erotics.” Tim Miller, author of Shirts and Skins and Body Blows.
