Dimly Lit Meals for One is an anthology of despair for all the people out there who have ever seasoned a dish with the bitter salt of their own tears. Based on the popular tumblr this book features never-before-seen photographs of humanity at its lowest culinary ebb, accompanied by tragicomic stories that will either leave you crying with laughter, or just crying ('Dimly Lit Meals for One will make you laugh till you're no longer hungry' - Washington Post). Inside these pages you'll meet a cast of colourless characters trapped in a kitchen hell of their own devising, witness their struggles to fulfil their recommended five a day, and marvel at how much human misery can be heaped onto a single plate. Fuelled by the author's first-hand experience at the dark heart of miserable food photography, Dimly Lit Meals for One is the culmination of 'one man's quest to chronicle the most depressing dinners on the internet.' (Buzzfeed). Bigger, sadder, and funnier than ever before, this book serves up bite-sized portions of hilarity and heartbreak alongside some of the most inept food photography ever seen. You'll think differently about the dinnertimes you've spent bathed in the radioactive glow of the microwave and, perhaps you'll even be inspired to share your own dimly lit meals with the rest of the world. Or not.
