Ship of Fools press Exhibition: The Cannibal Club by Farrell and Sheppard

 The Cannibal Club has not been reprinted since 1987, and is a piece of surreal Victoriana, based, in part, around the heroic and diabolic figure of Richard Francis Burton. 'The Cannibal Club' was a dining club where bohemians could pretend they were eating human flesh. We are hoping to get this book back into print soon.

'Now, Burton, Tell me; how do you feel when you have killed a man?' 'Oh, quite jolly, Doctor! How do you?'
