About the Author
The Soup Peddler is DAVID ANSEL, a sixth-generation Baltimorean Jew expatriate living in the liberal enclave of Austin, Texas. His transformation from software developer to yoga teacher to bicycle-pedaling purveyor of soup has attracted attention from such disparate media as the Christian Science Monitor and Punk Planet. His booming soup-delivery service has also been featured on the Food Network.

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.
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.
There's a lot more to it though -- it captures the spirit of the old South Austin neighborhoods, before the condos and California-style buildings started popping up everywhere.
