Much like the "food porn" he tempts us with in his many travels, Anthony Bourdain concocts a flavorful stew of spicy meat and exotic flavors. A little formula, but he takes the "back-alley heavy" crime genre to new heights of culinary ecstacy with his sharp filet knife. Okay, enough of the food analogies--but for him, it really works. And, he is truly a character in person.

I've enjoyed Mr. Bourdain on his TV series and thought I'd see if his style came through in another genre as well. It does. It takes cosiderable skill to make a career criminal so likeable that you cheer for him. The brief chapters meld together to form a cohesive story that is so entertaining. It's a very interesting biography of a Jewish kid that should have been a doctor but ends up a ne'er do well. But all is well in the end when Bobby, at least in my eyes, redeems himself. Buy this slim volume you'll like it.

Anthony Bourdain's literary style, like his cooking, is not for everyone. But, for those who do enjoy his unique approach to life, his latest work is good...very good! I enjoyed his building of characters, their interplay and the fact that Bourdain tells a grand story, no matter how much it may run against the grain of our own principles. His behind the door glimpses into lives other than our own, is his strong suit. I highly recommend the purchase of this novel.
