'I was going to say a brilliant debut novel, but it needs no qualification. A brilliant novel, full stop.' --Paula Leyden, winner of the 2011/12 Eilís Dillon Award
About the Author
Ian has travelled around the world twice (once in each direction) and sampled many of the world's strangest foods en-route from snakes and scorpions, to a soup in Thailand that required all his anatomical knowledge to deduce its contents. Ian is a long term member of the Slow Food Movement in Ireland, a collector of old culinary-related books and an avid cook and wine collector. Ian now works as a consultant eye surgeon in Dublin, where he has lived for over 10 years. The Reluctant Cannibals is Ian's first novel.
