Editorial Reviews


“One of the best things you can enjoy without melted butter.” (Natural History magazine)

“A fascinating story, blending science, politics and history . . . the writing is vivid.” (USA Today on The Secret Life of Lobsters)

“Corson serves up a savory blend of history and science along with a satisfying course of lobster and human behavior.” (Boston Herald on The Secret Life of Lobsters)

“Trevor Corson’s reverence for all things from the sea is palpable. In his new book The Zen of Fish he takes you on a fascinating journey into the world of sushi. The story he relates is rich in detail, thoroughly engaging, simply a pleasure to get lost in.” (Eric Ripert, executive chef and co-owner of Le Bernardin, and author of “A Return to Cooking” and “Le Bernardin Cookbook: Four-Star Simplicity.”)

“The Zen of Fish is a pleasure to read, entertaining and informative, with compelling characters and fascinating history, all told in an easy and natural voice. Excellent food journalism.” (Michael Ruhlman, author of The Soul of a Chef)

“Modest, unpretentious, and personal―it offers the familiar comfort of an omakase lunch…” (Entertainment Weekly)

Corson leaves no detail unexplained, and true food nerds will appreciate his rigor....fascinating.... you’ll still be lining up to order your favorite snack, but with renewed appreciation. (Penthouse)

“Lively. . . . vivid mixture of history, science, and personal anecdotes.” (Los Angeles Times)

Illuminating new book... (Time Out New York)

Editor’s Choice; “An often amusing history.” (New York Times Book Review)
