Edward Trencom's Nose : A Novel of History, Dark Intrigue, and Cheese
Lord Byron also makes an appearance, as does a cow called Wittgenstein. Milton oversees both his characters and his readers with a firm and paternal tone, like a charming public-school master taking his favourite pupils on a tour: "Before plunging any deeper into the terrible fate that was to befall Edward, we must first make acquaintance of the Trencom wives. The cheeses, though, are the real heroes of the book: the smoked Norfolk tynwood with its pock-marked rind and lemony flesh; the tomme du Mont Chenis, redolent of the "imminent arrival of snow"; "the brine-washed abbabye du mont des cats"; the goaty touloumotyri.
Milton has obviously enjoyed his cheese research, and he gets up to great mischief in Trencom's cheese shop, variously burning it down the cheeses "molten, dripping and turned to liquid oil" , flooding it "fortified cheese castles standing indomitably against the incoming tide" , and setting it as a scene for love-making, intrigue and murder. Comic novels are difficult to write: any old halfwit can produce pages of stinking high seriousness, but it takes a real wit to manage pages of mild, fragrant good humour.
