Cinnamon and Gunpowder ($26.00) is a swashbuckling epicure’s adventure simmered over a surprisingly touching love story—with a dash of the strangest, most delightful cookbook never written. Eli Brown has crafted a uniquely entertaining novel full of adventure: the Scheherazade story turned on its head, at sea, with food.
Eli Brown lives on an experimental urban farm in Alameda, California. His writing has appeared in the Cortland Review and Homewrecker: An Adultery Reader. His first novel, The Great Days, won the Fabri Literary Prize.
A gripping adventure, a seaborne romance, and a twist on the tale of Scheherazade with the best food ever served aboard a pirate's ship
