Cook, Eat, Repeat is a delicious and delightful combination of recipes intertwined with narrative essays about food, all written in Nigella’s engaging and insightful prose. Whether talking about the evolution and meaning of the recipe in ‘What is a Recipe?’ – ‘a recipe, much like a novel, is a living collaboration between writer and reader. And in both cases, it is the reader who keeps it alive’ – or exploring the heinous notion of the guilty pleasure in ‘Death to the Guilty Pleasure’, Nigella is by turns characteristically informative, intelligent, thought-provoking and amusing.
“In the Tall Grass” begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass.

What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.Please note: “In the Tall Grass” was originally published by Esquire magazine and released as a film on Netflix in 2019.
