Welcome to The Hills, Oslo’s most esteemed restaurant, an institution stewed in tradition and clinging to the faded grandeur of old Europe. A neurotic waiter tends to the desires of his clientele. At table ten sits the impeccable Mr Graham, impatiently awaiting a special guest. When at last she arrives – young, beautiful, mysterious – she will prove to be a challenging new flavour, threatening both our waiter’s nerves, and the delicately balanced ingredients of the room.
Exquisitely observed and wickedly playful, The Waiter is a novel for lovers of food, wine, and of European sensibilities.
