From the Publisher“A mix of self-deprecating humor and lightly worn erudition."—Wall Street Journal
“The Year of Eating Dangerously chronicles [Tom’s] travels...in an attempt to acquire new experiences and eat like the natives do, and ultimately what makes it so engaging is that he only partly succeeds…his sense of humor is intact throughout and never sharper than when he’s writing about himself…”—The New York Times
“A veritable culinary Odysseus...[Bowles] wins over his audience as a writer, describing dishes and sensations with the zeal of the recently famished, and his own hedonistic acts in delightful passages of unabashed bravado and self-deprecating humor” —Kirkus Reviews
"[Bowles'] sly, tongue in cheek wit...sets [The Year of Eating Dangerously] apart from Bourdain's macho, New Yorker fearlessness and serves up a funnier and more relatable dish."—Radar
“Tom Parker Bowles writes with a testosterone-inked pen.”—Slate
"The book offers more than 'he ate what?' sensationalism; it also prods our culinary preconceptions."
"Tom Parker Bowles is nothing if not a charmer. From the first page...this reader was hooked."—The Washington Times
