AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Gianni Terremoto is a baker. He is on a quest to bake his way into history. Gianni's lover's breasts have become the baker's mental mould for his rolls and sourdoughs and his daughter Francesca is about to become enshrined as the new local saint, their carnival martyr. In the year in question Good Friday and April Fool's Day coincide. Gianni, born an April Fool, decides to bake a hot cross bun the like of which there's never been. The ensuing hallucinations and food poisoning derail the entire town.' (Publication summary)
