I just got my free copy of "Nasty Bits" by Anthony Bourdain. After trying to get through it on the way to work this morning, I come away relieved that I didn't pay for the book. I like Bourdain...I find him amusing but this book is just a retread of his more obnoxious musings; Americans eat like shit, fusion is the devil, dishwashers are badass, chefs are outlaws, rascals and rogues...or at least the good ones are.
Is anyone else beginning to find his writing style a little tedious? I'm waiting for him to produce something of merit, something useful, something worth poring over.
This book isn't it.
I was half tempted to leave my copy on the subway for someone more appreciative.
