#nowreading Anthony Boudain "Get Jiro!"


If you are a fan of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" television show and you even remotely like reading comic books (graphic novels, for you snobs), then you need this book. It's not the best comic book in the world, but if you go into it recognizing Bourdain's humor, thoughts on what good food is, and how important food is to Bourdain emotionally, psychologically, physically, and even romantically, you'll get and love the ridiculous storyline and witty humor. And pay close attention to the Langdon Foss' illustrations, cause the subtle but stereotyping humor is all over the cityscape. There are severed heads and limbs right from the beginning and the humor is geared toward foodie adults, so not for kids. Otherwise, highly recommended.
