Description

This is the stuff of real writing … Bourdain is a great original

This is the stuff of real writing … Bourdain is a great original

One of the world’s first and most influential celebrity chefs

Thrillingly profane, aggressively truthful voice … He would eat anything, go anywhere and say anything

Bourdain is a very funny writer; sharp, honest and with a beguiling mix of belligerence and sensitivity

Brilliantly written in a raw, stylist gonzo prose, with pitch-black humour and a devilish turn of phrase

Christ, could Bourdain weave words … Imagery like crime-scene photos, the flayed raw humour of a morgue attendant, the sort of one-liners a hitman drips as he pulls the trigger, and similes that would make Raymond Chandler eat his own pencils. For all the rock’n’roll, the easy, sleazy charm, the guy wrote like a poet

Terrific … His love for his subjects – both the food and the cook – sings

Thrillingly profane, aggressively truthful … He would eat anything, go anywhere and say anything

Bourdain is a vivid, bawdy and often foul-mouthed writer. He thrills in the attack, but he is also an enthusiast who writes well about things he holds dear

Fun and frank ... The perfect book for veteran travellers, armchair enthusiasts and those in-between

Anthony Bourdain was the New York Times-bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential, which sold over a million copies, Medium Raw, A Cook’s Tour and The Nasty Bits, the cookbooks Appetites and Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook, and the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo. His work appeared in the New York Times and The New Yorker. He was the host of the popular television shows No Reservations and Parts Unknown. Bourdain died in June 2018. Laurie Woolever is a writer and editor, and spent nearly a decade assisting Anthony Bourdain, with whom she coauthored the cookbook Appetites in 2016. She’s written about food and travel for the New York Times, GQ, Food & Wine, Lucky Peach, Saveur, Dissent, Roads & Kingdoms, and others, and has worked as an editor at Art Culinaire and Wine Spectator.
