A heady brew of historical facts and reckless adventure
on 2 October 2000
Take 500 years of history, thousands of miles worth of precarious travelling, a bundle of religious fanatics, a gaggle of politics, a spoonful of war and some cake, mix it all up with some strange berries and an obsessive american in an enormous cup-shaped er...big cup and what you get is: The Devil's Cup by Stewart Lee Allen.
It's a bit of a novel, a bit of a travel book and a bit of a history book. Wrapped in a beautifully simple dust jacket, protecting a cunningly simple embossed hard cover. It's a pungent read and will even look good on your...er...whatsit table.
