Product Details

Praise

“The further Walsh strays from his Texas roots the sharper his accounts . . . Aspiring gourmets will appreciate the recipes sprinkled throughout . . . A helpful, amusing, no–nonsense oyster manual for the layperson.” —Kirkus Reviews

Sex, Death & Oysters captures the Houston food writer at his best, offering culinary insight, scientific fact, and offbeat humor as he travels the globe in search of the truth about oysters.” —Texas Monthly

“Ample oyster facts, figures and literary lore flesh out [Sex, Death & Oysters] . . . [Walsh] lists the oyster bars visited in the course of the book—along with several recipes—which will whet the appetites of aficionados.” —Publishers Weekly

“Walsh’s seemingly exhaustive research has produced a thorough look at the oyster industry, from its history to past and present politics.” —Sauce Magazine

“If you love oysters, this is the book for you. And if you don’t, try a Gulf Coast oyster between November and March, when they’re the sweetest, says Walsh, and then see how you feel.” —San Antonio Express–News
