"This is the stuff of real writing.... Bourdain is a great original." (Mail on Sunday)
"One of the world’s first and most influential celebrity chefs." (Guardian)
"Thrillingly profane, aggressively truthful voice.... He would eat anything, go anywhere and say anything." (New York Times)
Bloomsbury presents World Travel by Anthony Bourdain and Laurie Woolever, read by Laurie Woolever, Shep Gordon, Christopher Bourdain, Jen Agg, Matt Walsh, Bill Buford, Claude Tayag, Nari Kye, Vidya Balachander and Steve Albini.
A celebration of the life and legacy of one of the most important food writers of all time - the inimitable Anthony Bourdain.
Anthony Bourdain saw more of the world than nearly anyone. His travels took him from his hometown of New York to a tribal longhouse in Borneo, from cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, Paris and Shanghai to the stunning desert solitude of Oman’s Empty Quarter - and many places beyond.
In World Travel, a life of experience is collected into an entertaining, practical, fun and frank travel guide that gives listeners an introduction to some of his favourite places - in his own words. Featuring essential advice on how to get there, what to eat, where to stay and, in some cases, what to avoid.
Supplementing Bourdain’s words are a handful of essays by friends, colleagues and family that tell even deeper stories about a place, including sardonic accounts of traveling with Bourdain by his brother, Chris, a guide to Chicago’s best cheap eats by legendary music producer Steve Albini and more.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
This book is unnecessary
There's no doubt that this book was made with love for Tony Bourdain, but if you're a fan -- and if you're here, you must be -- there's nothing new. If you've seen his shows, and heard his narration, then you already know the best bits of the book.
Perfect for anyone who's watched his shows!
Covers quite a lot of Parts Unknown and goes over each place in a little more detail.
