She opens her diary to count seven weeks from this day and circles that day with red ink. She has allowed 49 days in which to gather together the odds and ends of her life in preparation for her suicide. But what has driven her to this?
Moving from the East End of London to the wide rivers of France and the arid desert of Tunisia, The Sudden Spoon tells the story of Eliza Looker, an English photographer, and her chance meetings with Savinien, a Frenchman. Her thoughts are clouded by many things; romantic yearnings and more earthy desire obscure the real Savinien.
