The Man Who Gave Cook Notice by Bateman
The Man Who Gave Cook Notice by Bateman. A tale of what not to do. The Cook is stood in the centre of the room, she has long nails, high heels and a diamond ring. The man is folded up on the floor surrounded by money and his pipe. He looks like he might have been poisoned or drugged, his head is spinning, his arms and legs are twisted as if he has fallen. Cook is important, everyone is scarred of her. Date: 1929
