A rapturous novel about a young chef whose discovery of pleasure alters her life and, indirectly, the world FROM THE BOOKER-LONGLISTED AUTHOR OF HOW MUCH OF THESE HILLS IS GOLD

A smog has spread. Food crops are disappearing. A chef escapes her career in London to take a job at a decadent, mountaintop colony seemingly free of the world's troubles. There, the sky is clear again. Rare ingredients abound. Her enigmatic employer and his visionary daughter have built a lush new life for the global elite, one that reawakens the chef to the pleasures of taste, touch, and her own body.

In this atmosphere of hidden wonders and cool, seductive violence, the chef's boundaries undergo a thrilling erosion. Soon she is pushed to the center of a startling attempt to reshape the world far beyond the plate. Sensuous and surprising, joyous and bitingly sharp, told in alluring language, Land of Milk and Honey is a delicious, striking and sensual novel about food, sex and the intricacies of desire and longing.

'Land of Milk and Honey is a sharp, sensual piece of art. Zhang writes about the appetites of the body, the uneasy coexistence of scarcity and plenty, and the pleasure and debasement of what is surrendered to survive. This is an incredible exploration of whether it is possible to preserve one's art when answering to a master that is not yourself. When I read I'm always searching for pleasure, for the want, and this book helped me feel something'
- Raven Leilani
