From the Publisher
The first culinary memoir to feature chase scenes, dream sequences, an ice creampeddling archenemy, a cross-dressing mayoral candidate, and a furry sidekick.
The Soup Peddler s burgeoning business embodies slow food and environmentalist ideals, with emphases on healthy, seasonal ingredients; veggie-friendly options; sustainability; reusable packaging; and a whole lotta TLC.
Soups include Mulligatawny (spicy Indian soup), Ajiaco (Colombian chicken-corn soup), and Armenian Apricot Soup, as well as new twists on comforting favorites like Borscht, Veggie Minestrone, and Salmon Chowder.

If you are intersted in reading David Ansel's reveries, then this is primarily what the book is about. They are fascinating.
Since I expected to find more or the former and less of the latter, I was disappointed.
Great recipes, stories, characters, conflict, a cookbook with everything! I predict that foodies and soupies from across America and the world will descend on Austin like a plague of locusts in order to say they have been to Bouldin Creek and actually seen the land of the Soupies.
