Présentation de l'éditeur

In September 2005, Alex Kapranos began writing about what he ate while touring the world with the rock band Franz Ferdinand. The writing is as much about where he eats and the people he eats with as the unusual flavours he tastes on the road. Whether it’s munching donuts with cops in Brooklyn, swallowing bull’s balls with the band in Buenos Aires or queuing for a saveloy in South Shields, these are surprising and vivid snapshots of life on the road. Funny, poignant, sickening or sexual depending on the situation, the material, both new and previously published in the Guardian, is fascinating and entertaining.

Biographie de l'auteur

Alex Kapranos is the singer and guitarist of Franz Ferdinand. Before the success of the band, he spent over a decade jumping between stints as a chef, wine waiter, kitchen porter, delivery driver, welder, promoter, college lecturer and doley layabout: anything to generate the cash that his bands didn’t. Andrew Knowles is touring drummer and keyboards player with the band, and a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art.

"Let me eat cake! I'm a rock star!" 11 janvier 2007
Par H. McGuire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is one of most entertaining foodie/travel/memoir books I've read in a long time! You don't have to be a fan of Franz Ferdinand to read this--it's a very worldly, witty, thoughtful collection of impressions about food and life, life on the road, restaurants around the world, and more. Kapranos also shares food-related stories of growing up in England and Scotland (where he was a chef before becoming a rock star). Highly recommended!

literary tapas 20 février 2007
Par gcon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
so the guy from franz ferdinand tours the world and writes about what he eats. but it's more than that, it's not just the food, it's the atmosphere, it's the thoughts and feelings the food and atmosphere conjure up. it's all there. each "chapter" is no more than two pages, a quick sampling, but in those two pages, you get a feel and a taste for a place, for a moment of time. it's fun, funny, occasionally poetic, and even comes with a list of addresses and phone numbers of the restaurants talked about in the book.

so worth your time, a definate buy.

"Ameeezing"! 23 octobre 2009
Par A. Castaneda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had anticipated reading this book for a few years...I am extremely satisfied with the work the lovely Mr.Alex Kapranos has done. He is not a foodie or food critic, but yet he makes food sound so intruiging. Especially the cakes...I got hungry more than once reading this book and the illustrations were very good and entertaining, big thumbs up to Mr.Andy Knowles.
This is the first book I have ever read under this category, and I'm "hungry" for more. Maybe under my circumstances, you should enjoy it as much as I did.

A Very Good Read! 2 février 2009
Par Elizabeth Pantelis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm not much of a non-fiction reader nor a foodie, but I absolutely loved this book. It's storytelling with detail so eloquent and vivid that it feels like a good friend is taking you to experience these places. I couldn't pull myself away! I was completed surprised. I bought the book because I'm a fan of Franz Ferdinand and I enjoy hearing or reading Alex's interviews. He really knows how to pull you into a story. This isn't a book just critiquing food. It's a full on story following somewhat of a timeline with entertaining flashbacks to his childhood in Glasgow, London, and Greece and experiences as a chef in Glasgow. Everything is there, the good the bad, the absolutely disgusting. He writes about fast food joints all the way up to 5 star digs. It's across the board entertainment. I couldn't recommend this book any more.

Tasty Little Treats 1 juillet 2007
Par Elizabeth Hendry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Alex Kapranos' Sound Bites is a great collection of food essays Kapranos penned while on tour (mostly) with Franz Ferdinand. These little essays are tasty little tidbits with a twist. Kapranos' approach is unexpected and maybe a little twisted. The essays are delightful and this collection, while slim, will provide you with a lovely afternoon or two of reading. Enjoy.
