so the guy from franz ferdinand tours the world and writes about what he eats. but it's more than that, it's not just the food, it's the atmosphere, it's the thoughts and feelings the food and atmosphere conjure up. it's all there. each "chapter" is no more than two pages, a quick sampling, but in those two pages, you get a feel and a taste for a place, for a moment of time. it's fun, funny, occasionally poetic, and even comes with a list of addresses and phone numbers of the restaurants talked about in the book.
so worth your time, a definate buy.
