Penguin Presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Chop Chop by Simon Wroe, read by Daniel Weyman.

Two months behind on his rent, young graduate Monocle swallows his dreams and takes the only job he can find: the lowest-rung chef in a gastropub in Camden. Here he finds himself surrounded by a group of deranged, criminal hoodlums (his coworkers) and at the mercy of an ingenious sadist (the head chef, Bob).

What follows is a furiously paced, ribald, raucous, and deeply touching tale of loyalty and revenge, dark appetites, and fading dreams and a young man finding his way in the world as he is plunged into the fat and the frying pan and everything else besides.
