When Anthony Bourdain died, the outpouring of love from his fans around the world was momentous. The tributes spoke to his legacy: That the world is much smaller than we imagine and people are more alike than they are different. As he once said, “If I’m an advocate of anything, it’s to move… Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food.” This book brings together memories and anecdotes from fans reminiscing about Bourdain’s unique achievements and his enduring effect on their lives as well as comments from chefs, journalists, filmmakers, musicians, and writers inspired by Tony. These remembrances give us a glimpse of Tony’s widespread impact through his political and social commitments, his dedication to travel and eating well (and widely), and his love of the written word, along with his deep compassion, open-mindedness, and interest in lives different from his own.
