Time magazine is out with the Top 10 of Everything in 2009 -- and Jason Sheehan's Cooking Dirty makes the list of the top ten non-fiction books of the year, coming in at #9.
Here's what Time says about Sheehan's book in its round-up:
"It's a paradox of the post-Bourdain era: chef memoirs are trendy, but none of the chefs writing them have the freakish combination of cooking and writing talent that made Anthony Bourdain a star. But Jason Sheehan comes damn close, and he gives the genre his own distinctive seasoning. He comes at us from the low end of the culinary universe, with tales of chaos from the kitchens of diners and pubs and pizzerias and Chinese restaurants, told with total honesty and vast verbal energy."
