"Jeremy Papier, the new Alice Waters of the Vancouver food scene, is fast becoming known for his radically rear-guard cuisine - tradition-steeped dishes that celebrate the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. His restaurant is always booked, and his Fraser Valley duck breast and Saltspring Island lamb are the talk of the local foodies. The Monkey's Paw Bistro is unquestionably an artistic triumph. Pity it is something less than a well-run business." "Far too costly ever to turn a profit, The Paw is kited on dozens of Jeremy's maxed-out credit cards. An old family friend, Dante Beale, founder of a worldwide chain of cookie-cutter coffee bars, is willing to bail the restaurant out - on condition that he become majority owner. It's a business proposition made in hell, one strenuously opposed by Jeremy's pretty young sous-chef, the incorruptible, plainspoken Jules Capelli." "Jeremy's problems deepen when his eccentric academic father - an obsessed, half-mad "participatory anthropologist" - loses himself among the homeless in Vancouver's Stanley Park. He lives as they do (he's especially adept at catching and roasting starlings) and soon involves Jeremy in researching a "cold case" crime, the real-life murder of two children in the park in the late 1940s."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

A totally amazing novel about food and family. The food descriptions alone are worth the read, and the crazy way the main character moves between the world of high-end food and the homeless world of Stanley Park, and how a true story about two children who were murdered years earlier in a park weaves into the story - I plan to reread this book.

Jeremy is a chef in Vancouver and owns his own small restaurant, with the focus being on local food; however, he has run up a lot of bills to make a go of this place, and it's catching up to him. His dad is an anthropology professor, conducting a study of homeless people in Stanley Park. The Professor is also interested in a murder of two children, a cold case from the late 40s/early 50s.

Some parts were more interesting than others. It was the unsolved murder that drew me to the book to begin with, but there was so little about it in the book, and past the initial description of it (apparently, this really is a cold case in Vancouver), what was there just didn't hold my interest very much. The food aspect of the book didn't do anything for me (in fact, I wouldn't have eaten a single thing mentioned in the book, but then, I'm not at all adventurous with food), although the restaurant part got more interesting as the story went on. The Professor and his homeless friends were pretty boring, I thought. Overall, despite my mostly negative comments, I'd consider the book "o.k.", but nothing more. ( )

Loved the foodie, living-from-the-land theme of this novel and its overall message of the importance of working out what it is that is really important in a person's life. At one point in the first half of the book I got slightly frustrated with Jeremy's financial woes and thought it wasn't entirely convincing that he wouldn't have talked to Jules and to Olli about them sooner than he did. But once that part was past, I really enjoyed the second half of the book. ( )

I'm abandoning this book after 123 pages. Sorry Jim [Cuddy, the defender of this book on Canada Reads]. I do like the concept and appreciate the themes underlying the narrative, but I feel somewhat detached from the protagonist and am not really in the right mindset to be invested in his situation. So this one goes back to my mum's shelf unfinished (although apparently she didn't finish it either). I think this is the only Canada Reads book that I've left unfinished so far (I don't read all of them, just the ones I think are interesting). ( )

Please tell me that someone is going to make a film of this book - the climactic scene when Jeremy opens his new restaurant is just begging to be filmed. ( )
