Bourdain’s last book will be released this year

The book is a "fun and frank travel guide"

1y ago

A book by the late great Anthony Bourdain will be released posthumously later this year.

The country’s beloved chef and author was working on a new book when he died in 2018.

It’s called World Travel: An Irreverent Guide, and it’ll be published by Ecco this year.

The book has been described as part memoir, part guidebook. It’s “a life of experience is collected into an entertaining, practical, fun and frank travel guide that gives readers an introduction to some of his favorite places — in his own words.”

The guide will also include essays from Bourdain’s family and friends.

World Travel: An Irreverent Guide has been illustrated by Tony Millionaire. It was written mostly before Bourdain died.

The celebrity chef’s long-time assistant Laurie Woolever is the co-author. She told People magazine: “It’s been my honor and pleasure to create a book that includes stories from his loved ones and colleagues. I was lucky to work closely with Tony for nearly a decade, and I’m so pleased to be able to share his reflections and insights about the world, as he saw it, in this guide.”

You can get your own copy of the book on 13 October.

  • I was a big fan of this guy. When I was watching him shows, I took notes. He was the last warrior of the masculinism (of course I don't mean Trumpian machismo). Now, all we have is Clarkson. We have to keep him as a state of art.
