I am reading a memoir called The Ramen King and I: How the Inventor of Instant Noodles Fixed My Love Life.
I hate memoirs. I never read them. The only memoir I ever finished is Angela's Ashes and that's because it really didn't read like a memoir at all. It read like fiction.
So, you might be asking yourself, "Why are you reading The Ramen King and I?"
I actually have a very good answer. Because I dated the author, Andy Raskin. When I say dated, I don't mean that he was ever actually my boyfriend. But we did go out several times and we even somehow ended up spending a week scuba diving together in Cozumel.
And, furthermore, I credit him to some extent for the fact that I am a published author today.
So, I certainly feel the need to know how exactly Momofuku Ando, the inventor of instant noodles, fixed his love life.
