Adam Johnson, author of the the brilliant “The Orphan Master’s Son” (my copy of which I seem to have misplaced, now that I think of it), writes about The Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il and a Sushi Chef, and their delicately, balanced on a knife’s edge relationship. Scary and stunning.
The title of the article, in case you are wondering comes from “Jiro Dreams of Sushi“, a documentary on Jiro Ono, who many consider to be the greatest Sushi Chef in the world. I haven’t seen the film, nor do I hold Sushi in high regard, but someone I know tells me it’s lovely.
