The new book, World Travel: An Irreverent Guide, is credited to Anthony Bourdain.

But it was not really written by the bestselling author, chef and TV personality who died in 2018.

World Travel: An Irreverent Guide was assembled by one of Bourdain’s associates, Laurie Woolever, based entirely on his previous writings and an hourlong interview conducted shortly before his death.

Bourdain had collaborated with Woolever on 2016’s Appetites: A Cookbook, and this project was conceived of shortly thereafter, she says, with the intent to spotlight some of Bourdain’s favorite places around the globe.
