"Lunch of Blood" is a powerful collection of profiles by Antonella Gambotto, one of Australia's most controversial and uncompromising interviewers. She is penetrating in her observations, ruthless in her descriptions, and not afraid to have opinions. We may never meet the people laid bare by these profiles - but there is writing here which will make the reader feel as unsettled as the subjects were...

Subjects include: Elle MacPherson, Andrew Ettingshausen, Naomi Wolf, John Pilger, Madam Lash, Siimon Reynolds, Sophie Lee, Edward De Bono, Alex Dimitriades, Rachel Hunter, Martin Amis, Elle McFeast, Noah Taylor, Gerard Depardieu, Nick Cave, Morrissey, Richard Neville, James Blundell, Gosia Dobrowolska, Ben Elton, Sean Kelly, Maria Kozic, Paul Mercurio, Thierry Mulger, Marc Newson, and Aden Young.

"On the page, Gambotto's words can snap and bark like terriers worrying prey at bay. She seems to mesmerize, to winkle out ever more personal revelations from her subjects, the tired-and-emotional type of home truths that usually punctuate a long lunch. This, coupled with a merciless eye for minutiae and a matador's instinct for the kill, has produced some notable confrontations."

Murray Waldren, The Australian
