Agony: Suffering Yesterday, Entertaining Today, a nonfiction tome of urban legend, medical, historical trivia, and recipes has been signed for a 2020 release.
Online PR News – 10-October-2019 – Charlotte, North Carolina – Join a cast of increasingly weary time-traveling tour guides as they traverse the centuries, tasting the recipes of humanity's past during times of the greatest folly. You learned about these disasters in school, and now it is time to eat them too, in the style of historical tartare. Here's a sampling of dining destinations we will visit: • An American civil war battlefield hospital for a bowl of toast soup - after the latest amputee is moved off the table! • The lavish iron bowels of the Titanic, touring every class' meal offerings from gruel to hachis parmentier. No need to ask for a glass of water. • In a Venetian plague house, we'll sneeze and convulse after a tureen of cabbage potage. Bring an extra bowl and lid to catch a pet rat! • A hospital bar on the eve of Y2K, before they turn off all of the POS systems to prevent their sentient uprising. Your boarding ticket is ready. Buckle up. We have a lot of cooking, bleeding, and screaming in fields, outhouses, and vast open stretches of freezing ocean to do.
