    An auction of various things from the estate of Anthony Bourdain, the late writer, chef, and TV host, is happening now through October 30, and it includes a number of Bourdain’s early writings. The current bid for the original manuscript of A Chef’s Christmas, his 2002 holiday audiobook, is $900, four typed short stories he wrote in college are going for $500, and a collection of early typed and handwritten prose and poetry(!) is currently $1,900.

    A number of books from Bourdain’s personal library are also for sale, as well as a watercolor by Brad Philips that reads “Eat, Pray, GET THE FUCK OUT.” For the true literature/art/food connoisseurs among you only.
