The Banquet Bug

Let's learn a freaky new word, shall we?

Nyotaimori: "the practice of eating sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically nude, for the purpose of sexual excitement." (Thanks, Wikipedia)

Oh yeah, the book: "This is the fantastical tale of Dan Dong, an unemployed factory worker whose life takes a series of unexpected twists after he discovers that, by posing as a journalist, he can eat exquisite gourmet meals for free at state-sponsored banquets." And I guess there's a prostitute or something thrown in there too.

I can't wait to see the paperback.

There are restaurants here in Vancouver that have this food on a person option. I would apply, but apparently the fact that an entire buffet would fit on me is not considered an asset.

Photoshopping too obvious here, which makes the cover look cheap.

Would it really have been so expensive to just hire someone slim and order some Chinese takeout?
