Acclaimed chef, writer and television personality Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose (Kill The Poor) return for the follow-up to their #1 New York Times bestseller GET JIRO from Vertigo. In GET JIRO: BLOOD AND SUSHI, Bourdain and Rose examine the origins of the mysterious Jiro and what made him into the chef he has become. Born the heir to a Yakuza crime family, Jiro never longed to travel the criminal path laid out before him, but instead chose to secretly study the rich culinary history of his homeland--something that would have significant repercussions if discovered by his gangster father. As Jiro's interest in the culinary arts deepens, his ability to keep his artistic and criminal worlds separate becomes too great, triggering a great personal loss that will forever change Jiro's path.

About the Author

Born in 1956, Anthony Bourdain graduated from the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. His extensive body of work has graced the pages of The Times, New York Times, Observer, The Face, and Scotland on Sunday. He is an ongoing contributor and authority for Food Arts magazine. Bourdain's fictional works include two crime novels--1997's GONE BAMBOO and BONE IN THE THROAT in 1995. His book KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL- ADVENTURES IN THE CULINARY UNDERBELLY was a bestseller, with an updated edition published in 2007. In 2002, the Food Network debuted what would become a 22 episode series featuring Bourdain circling the globe and feeding his adventure eating habit with the most extreme cuisine the world had to offer. The inspired best-selling book, A COOK'S TOUR IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT MEAL, met with huge success in the United Kingdom and the United States.a Joel Rose's most recent novel is THE BLACKEST BIRD, which has been translated into 13 languages. Previous books include KILL THE POOR, KILL KILL FASTER FASTER (both of which have been made into films), and NEW YORK SAWED IN HALF. For DC Comics, he wrote the graphic novels LA PACIFICA and THE BIG BOOK OF THUGS.

Reviews

Praise for GET JIRO!: "GET JIRO unfolds in a dystopian version of Los Angeles where today's (mostly) polite and academic discussions about food have evolved into grisly gastronomic feuds.... In some ways, GET JIRO represents a coming-full-circle thing for Mr. Bourdain." --The New York Times "Bourdain ... promised 'an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcane, ' and he delivers pretty much exactly that.... Bourdain let's his foodie id run wild, extolling the elegant simplicity of a peasant dish like pot-au-feu here and caving in skulls with saute pans there. Foss' stubby, dough-faced figures walk a fine line between goofy and thuggish, and fall apart with great ickiness when dismembered. Equal parts blunt culinary opinion-mongering and satiric takedown of the very same chef-worship culture Bourdain helped create, this amusing diversion coasts comfortably in the wake of the standard bearer of gore-soaked foodie comics." --Booklist
