Journalist, author, and former fisherman Trevor Corson is making the rounds over the next couple days to talk about his new book The Zen of Fish. And if you have any interest in sushi–or seafood in general–he’s well worth seeing.
For this latest book, Corson, a DC resident who went to the Sidwell Friends school and spent years living in China and Japan, explores sushi from every angle. The fascinating, fast-moving narrative begins behind-the-scenes at an LA sushi training academy, then travels to Japan and beyond as Corson explores the history and science behind sushi and reveals how it’s morphed into an American food court staple, Philly rolls and all.
Tonight, June 6, at 7 PM, Corson reads at Politics and Prose (5015 Connecticut Ave., NW; 202-364-1919).
Tomorrow night at 7:30, he’s at the Tysons Corner Borders (8027 Leesburg Pk., Vienna; 703-556-7766).
And if you miss him, Corson keeps up TrevorCorson.com, where you'll find his SushiBlog, video interviews with the book’s personalities, recipes for making sushi at home, a primer on sushi-eating etiquette, and even a call for sushi-eating clubs and meet-up groups to let him join in on dinner.
