An unprecedented behind-the-scenes view into the life of Anthony Bourdain from the people who knew him best.

When Anthony Bourdain died in June 2018, fans around the globe came together to celebrate the life of an inimitable man who had dedicated his life to traveling nearly everywhere (and eating nearly everything), shedding light on the lives and stories of others. His impact was outsized and his legacy has only grown since his death.

Now, for the first time, we have been granted a look into Bourdain's life through the stories and recollections of his closest friends and colleagues. Laurie Woolever, Bourdain's longtime assistant and confidante, interviewed nearly a hundred of the people who shared Tony's orbitfrom members of his kitchen crews to his writing, publishing, and television partners, to his daughter and his closest friendsin order to piece together a remarkably full, vivid, and nuanced vision of Tony's life and work.

From his childhood and teenage days, to his early years in New York, through the genesis of his game-changing memoir Kitchen Confidential to his emergence as a writing and television personality, and in the words of friends and colleagues including Eric Ripert, Jos Andrs, Nigella Lawson, and W. Kamau Bell, as well as family members including his brother and his late mother, we see the many sides of Tonyhis motivations, his ambivalence, his vulnerability, his blind spots, and his brilliance.

Unparalleled in scope and deeply intimate in its execution, with a treasure trove of photos from Tony's life, Bourdain: The Definitive Oral Biography is a testament to the life of a remarkable man in the words of the people who shared his world.

Fascinating glimpses of the beloved cultural journalist in the words of scores f people who knew and/or worked with Anthony Bourdain from childhood and over the many years and different iterations of his life. While I appreciate leaving all these individuals’ words intact, I was disappointed in the format of just quote upon quote with no narrative to make it flow. I am hard-pressed to call Laurie Woolever the "author"; "edited by" seems more appropriate given that there was no narrative to tie all these individual quotes together. ( )

Compiled from interviews with over 90 people across friends, family, and colleagues, Woolever presents a memory mosaic of who Tony Bourdain was: charismatic and sharp, intuitive, perfectionist, addict. Definitely am going to rewatch episodes with some of the behind the scenes in mind... and I actually haven't gotten around to his fiction work, so there's that too. Crushed that he'll never be a grumpy, sage elder. ( )

I'm not really sure where to start. This biography was outstanding. It was really interesting to learn from those around Bourdain how he grew up, how he got his start in writing and how his experiences and travel changed the outcome of his life. I got so into the book that by the time I got towards the end I started to get sad knowing what was coming. He lived a full life and definitely left his mark on the world. ( )

Since I will never read a new book of Tony's again, this is the next best thing - a comprehensive portrait of the man by those who knew him best. It is, thankfully, not a hagiography - he was no saint. I'm also glad that the focus is not on his death but him as a person and, mostly, the twenty years of his life after Kitchen Confidential. The parts that are "missing" I'm glad are missing - there is nothing from Eric Ripert about his final days and his girlfriend at the time of his death is not included at all. Ariane, his daughter, has the closing reflection of the book, a fitting tribute to her dad. For the past three years we've been searching for his voice as we all navigate through this crazy world and I finally feel like I can stop looking - he's gone, and this book will help everyone appreciate him, but acknowledge that there will never be another like him and for his fans, we just need to take his message, "be a traveler not a tourist" to heart and travel in his memory and finally say goodbye.

This book was an insult to the reader, to the craft of the biographer, and above all, to Bourdain himself. A shocking attempt to capitalise upon his name and fame. Absolutely no insight whatsoever. A tragedy, portraying another tragedy. ( )
