I love his writing-The Right Stuff and Hells Angels are two of my favourite books.


#541

Bonfire of the Vanities was seminal work on the 80’s excesses even if literarily-lite, unlike the Dickens novels it aspired to be.

Master of the Universe, what a phrase, still used today in the financial markets.

Anthony Bourdain, sad.


#552

yes very sad- I am a huge fan of his programmes and cooking…his books are a good read.


#553

Just read it. Mind you, he lived a very full and interesting life if A Cooks Tour and Kitchen Confidential were anything to go by


#554

That’s completely fucked my day, I was a serious fan of his work, and his general attitude / approach to life.

He will be sorely missed.
