World Travel: An Irreverent Guide

Description

A celebration of the life and legacy of one of the most important food writers of all time.

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 readers 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. Additionally, each chapter includes illustrations by Wesley Allsbrook. 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.

'A vivid, bawdy and often foul-mouthed writer. He thrills in the attack, but he also an enthusiast who writes well about things he holds dear.' Wall Street Journal

'... for all the rock'n'roll, the easy, sleazy charm, the guy wrote like a poet.' Guardian
