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.

MEDIA 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 saut 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
