About the Author

Anthony Bourdain is the author of the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo, in addition to the nonfiction bestsellers Medium Raw, Kitchen Confidential, and A Cook's Tour. His work has appeared in the New York Times and the New Yorker, and he is a contributing authority for Food Arts magazine. He is also the host of the immensely popular television show No Reservations. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

A mystery in which plot takes a backseat to colorful characters and witty dialogue...Readers...who enjoy meeting interesting, quirky characters and listening to sharp dialogue will be pleased.

-- "Booklist"

Bourdain serves up a delectable concoction sure to appeal.

-- "Denver Post"

This rowdy beach story about an over-the-hill hit man and a retired Mafioso is charmingly narrated by Chris Patton, who lends subtle characterizations to most of the main players. To his credit, Patton doesn't fall into the trap of making the gangsters sound like The Sopranos.

-- "AudioFile"

With another antic tale, Bourdain establishes himself as a new master of the wiseass crime comedy...A potentially routine mob caper is brought to life by tight plotting, appealing characters and a stylish mix of irony, snappy dialogue and amoral verve.

-- "Publishers Weekly" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Chef, author, and raconteur Anthony Bourdain is best known for traveling the globe on his TV show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. Somewhat notoriously, he has established himself as a professional gadfly, bête noir, advocate, social critic, and pork enthusiast, recognized for his caustic sense of humor worldwide. He is as unsparing of those things he hates, as he is evangelical about his passions.

Bourdain is the author of the New York Times bestselling Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw; A Cook’s Tour; the collection The Nasty Bits; the novels Bone in the Throat and Gone Bamboo; the biography Typhoid Mary: An Urban Historical; two graphic novels, Get Jiro! and Get Jiro!: Blood and Sushi and his latest New York Times bestselling cookbook Appetites. He has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Times of London, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Vanity Fair, Lucky Peach and many other publications. In 2013, Bourdain launched his own publishing line with Ecco, Anthony Bourdain Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. He is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning docuseries Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown on CNN, and before that hosted Emmy award-winning No Reservations and The Layover on Travel Channel, and The Taste on ABC.
