LEN DEIGHTON ACTION COOKBOOK PDF

Deighton is famously publicity-shy, and I did wonder whether getting to interview him would be what the acronym-loving secret service bureaucrats of his early spy novels would call a high D of C Difficulty of Completion mission. We are in the lobby of a London hotel, a mile or so from where he grew up in a mews at the back of Montagu Square. I played truant all the time and I usually went to the Marylebone Reference library and I would just sit there all day long and read. A terrible kind of sedentary childhood I had, when I think about it. The first edition cover of The IPCRESS File by Len Deighton His first four novels are a wonderful mixture of the exciting and the amusingly humdrum, narrated by an unnamed working-class intelligence officer from Burnley who spends as much time trying to reclaim his expenses as he does searching for kidnapped scientists. Well, James Bond may be thinner, but so is his dialogue.

Well, James Bond may be thinner, but so is his dialogue. People communicate by miscommunicating. Modern fiction is not so keen to guard the integrity of our heroes… When I started writing I had rules.

One was that violence must not solve the problem, and I cannot have the hero overcome violence with a counterweight of violence. Does he think other spy writers are too solemn? They are always saying something different from what they appear to be saying — but then we all do that, says Deighton.

The English are supreme at this. By this time Deighton was famous. He took his name off the credits and opted for a quiet life with family and typewriter.

The audacity of it!

Len & Alex Deighton’s Mexican Cookstrips: Salsas

Action Cook Book, UK first edition, Action Cook Book - Summary Eighty original recipes from the series Deighton produced for The Observer newspaper between and are reproduced in this, his most famous - and revolutionary - cookbook. The strips cover a lot of English-sourced recipes that complement his later French recipe collection. Written in a simple step-by-step style, clearly aimed at an audience of men unskilled at knowing their way around the kitchen. Deighton demonstrates his knowledge as a gourmand; as well as being an accomplished chef, he grew up with a food background as his mother was a cook. The design is clearly aimed to appeal to the sixties bachelor - the front cover features a pistol with a sprig of parsley in the barrel. It assumes little knowledge; it offers recipes but also gives advice with illustrations on such subjects as why a refrigerator is a good thing to have in a kitchen really! The quality of the advice is first class, and many of the recipes would not look out of place on the menu of a gourmet restaurant.
