A Thoughtful Posthumous Collection from Bourdain

Listening to World Travel, this posthumous collection of commentary by chef Anthony Bourdain on his favorite places, is like joining him for one final adventure. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff discuss the many voices that bring the collection to life, including Laure Woolever, Bourdain’s assistant who worked with him on this project and supplied context for the many stories. Shep Gordon’s narration captures Bourdain’s tone as he describes the people and food he encounters in his travels. This is a listen that makes it easy to imagine traveling the world with Bourdain, and the essays interspersed throughout highlight the affection felt for the late travel show host and writer.
