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! And as Jiro's interest in the culinary arts deepens, the challenge of keeping his artistic and criminal worlds separate becomes too great, triggering a great personal loss that will forever change Jiro's path.

    While Dave Johnson's cover draws the eye in with brilliantly lurid neon glow and the gruesome imagery of severed heads displayed beside sushi, suggesting satisfying, empty calories, Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi has far, far more in store for any reader who can resist the urge of drowning it in wasabi and soy sauce.

    If you were a fan of the first volume and had to know Jiro's backstory, then you'll love this volume a lot more than I did. If like me, you just liked and enjoyed the first volume, then you'll probably feel about the same with this prequel. Hopefully the next volume will dive into Jiro's future which would be far more interesting and we can just let his past be just that. Read Full Review
