Reading - Shakespeare's Kitchen

Shakespeare's Kitchen by Lore Segal

The story treats Ilka Weisz, who accepts a position at a think tank called the Concordance Institute, and her struggle to form a new family out of friends and coworkers (in particular the director, Leslie Shakespeare, and his wife, Eliza).
Most of the action takes place (or is retold, properly discussed and drunkenly digested) in the kitchen Leslie Shakespeare, while Leslie's wife alternatively entertains and lambastes their friends.
