The Cook opens with Conrad, nearly seven feet tall, gaunt, and dressed all in black, arriving on his bicycle in the town of Cobb. He quickly secures a job as cook for the wealthy Hill family, winning their hearts and stomachs with his delectable dishes, and before long he has everyone around him eating out of his hand. A mouth-watering blend of delicious black humor and Kafkaesque horror story, The Cook (1965) is a dark fable "beginning in a vein of innocent fairy tale and ending with satanic revels" (The Observer).

Hill; it’s just that I’m supposed to be a housekeeper-I’m paid to be a housekeeper-and setting a table is not part of a housekeeper’s duties.
