In the Weeds : Around the World and Behind the Scenes with Anthony Bourdain Hardback



In the nearly two years since Anthony Bourdain's death, no one else has come close to filling the void he left.

His passion for and genuine curiosity about the people and cultures he visited made the world feel smaller and more connected.

Despite his affable, confident, and trademark snarky TV persona, the real Tony was intensely private, deeply conflicted about his fame, and an enigma even to those close to him.

Tony's devoted crew knew him best, and no one else had a front-row seat for as long as his director and producer, Tom Vitale. Over the course of more than a decade traveling together, Tony became a boss, a friend, a hero and, sometimes, a tormentor.

In the Weeds takes readers behind the scenes to reveal not just the insanity that went into filming in some of the most far-flung and volatile parts of the world, but what Tony was like unedited and off-camera.

From the outside, the job looked like an all-expenses-paid adventure to places like Borneo, Vietnam, Iran, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Libya.

What happened off-camera was far more interesting than what made it to air.

The more things went wrong, the better it was for the show.

Fortunately, everything fell apart constantly.
