Nutmeg | [Maria Goodin]

Nutmeg

Meg grew up in a world of food-filled fantasy, where her first tooth was so sharp her mother used her as a can opener, and eating too many apples once left her spitting pips. Then, aged five, she was humiliated in front of the other children at school and turned her back on the world of fiction, looking to logic to rule her everyday thoughts and deeds.

Publisher's Summary

Meg grew up in a world of food-filled fantasy, where her first tooth was so sharp her mother used her as a can opener, and eating too many apples once left her spitting pips. Then, aged five, she was humiliated in front of the other children at school and turned her back on the world of fiction, looking to logic to rule her everyday thoughts and deeds.

Now, years later, Meg's mother falls ill and while Meg struggles to deal with the situation in an orderly fashion, her mother remains cocooned in her obsession with cookery, refusing to face up to her illness.

Time is running out and Meg is determined to discover the truth about her childhood before it's too late; but the truth is not what she hoped it would be. Meg faces a humbling decision: to embrace cold harsh reality, or join her mother in a wonderful world of make-believe.

Maybe life isn't defined as fact or fiction - perhaps it can include truth, lies, and everything in between.

    Overall
    "Whimsical tale"

    The mother in this novel brings magic into the life of her daughter through her love of food. The language is playful and whimsical initially as the author explores their relationship in relation to food and cooking. As the story progresses it becomes a more complex and humane relationship and the novel is both funny and sad. A good listen - well read.
