Recenzii

This is the stuff of real writing . Bourdain is a great original
One of the world's first and most influential celebrity chefs
Thrillingly profane, aggressively truthful voice . He would eat anything, go anywhere and say anything
Bourdain is a very funny writer; sharp, honest and with a beguiling mix of belligerence and sensitivity
Brilliantly written in a raw, stylist gonzo prose, with pitch-black humour and a devilish turn of phrase
Christ, could Bourdain weave words . Imagery like crime-scene photos, the flayed raw humour of a morgue attendant, the sort of one-liners a hitman drips as he pulls the trigger, and similes that would make Raymond Chandler eat his own pencils. For all the rock'n'roll, the easy, sleazy charm, the guy wrote like a poet
Terrific . His love for his subjects - both the food and the cook - sings
Bourdain is a vivid, bawdy and often foul-mouthed writer. He thrills in the attack, but he is also an enthusiast who writes well about things he holds dear
Fun and frank ... The perfect book for veteran travellers, armchair enthusiasts and those in-between
