The exquisite specimens in his menagerie are Anezka, glamorous courtesan with a flair for the esoteric, Shóna, hard-bitten veteran of the street trade, and Miriam, whose speciality is everything.

High processed meat consumption led to a 72 per cent increased risk of dying from heart disease, and an 11 per cent increased risk of dying from cancer.
