Description

Perdita Lee and her mother Harriet may appear your average schoolgirl and working mother but they are anything but.

For one thing, their home is a gold-painted seventh-floor flat with some surprisingly verbal vegetation. And then there’s the gingerbread. As we follow the Lees through encounters with jealousy, ambition, family grudges, work and wealth, gingerbread seems to be the one thing that holds a constant value . . .

Influenced by the mysterious place gingerbread holds in classic children’s stories - equal parts wholesome and uncanny - beloved novelist Helen Oyeyemi invites readers into a delightful tale of a surprising family legacy, in which the inheritance is a recipe. Endlessly surprising and satisfying, written with Helen Oyeyemi’s inimitable style and imagination, Gingerbread is a true feast for the reader.
