Nora says: A very smart, well-written satire—a pleasure to read, especially in view of the trifurcated authorship, under the pseudonym S. E. Boyd. The world of celebrity chefs and internet influencer stardom is sent up in the most knowing, comical, and loving way. This is an affectionate romp through the hospitality industry in the digital age by writers who clearly know and love this crazy world.

Named a Most Anticipated Book of Fall 2022 by Entertainment Weekly - Vogue - AARP the Magazine - Eater - New York Post - LitHub - Publishers Lunch - and more!

Set in the intersecting worlds of fine dining, Hollywood, and the media, a darkly hilarious and ultimately affecting story about the underside of success and fame, and our ongoing complicity in devouring our cultural heroes.

While filming on location in Belfast, Northern Ireland, John Doe, the universally adored host of the culinary travel show Last Call, is found dead in a hotel room in an apparent suicide. As the news of his untimely demise breaks stateside, a group of friends, fixers, hustlers, and opportunists vie to seize control of the narrative: Doe's chess-master of an agent Nia, ready to call in every favor she is owed to preserve his legacy; down-on-her-luck journalist Katie, who fabricates a story about Doe to save her job at a failing website; and world-famous chef Paolo Cabrini, Doe's closest friend and confidant, who finds himself entangled with a deranged Belfast hotel worker whose lurid secret might just take them all down.

Bolstered by the authors' insider knowledge of high-end restaurants and low-end media, The Lemon delivers a raucous examination of our culture with deliciously cutting prose, crackling dialogue, and an unpredictable plot that will keep you riveted to the last page.
