Anthony Bourdain Remembered

One of the few TV hosts

who actually had something to say that was impactful on the human life. Bourdain was an extraordinary storyteller. I don’t recommend this book though – it’s all social media blurbs posted by chefs and people to a digital site CNN created for fans to come together after his death. Also included are large photos of Bourdain from his show. I thought this would dive into his life, his work and the series, but unfortunately no. I don’t think Tony (a fan myself… having seen every episode he’s ever made) would have approved of this book. Only good if you like reading fewer than 140 characters and prefer pictures than actual paragraphs and chapters of non-fiction storytelling.
