The Washington Post Review of The Cooking Gene 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/tracing-his-urge-to-cook-through-slavery-and-the-south/2017/08/18/1aeaa6de-6e19-11e7-96ab-5f38140b38cc_story.html?utm_term=.9a21def40ce7

This is cool. I pretty much like it and go, aiight. 

I guess I’d like to correct a few things. 1. Because of an unscrupulous landlord and some failures on the part of the City of Rockville Code Enforcement Division to address how they broke the law, I no longer live in Rockville, Maryland. It is no longer my hometown.

Also, I didn’t drop out of Howard University, I ran out of money. Drop out and broke out are two different things. Hey, just being real. 

And, “substantial girth,” yes, and? Normally I’d take that as a compliment but in this differing context….I will still take it as a compliment. 

Enjoy!

Michael.
