The good, the bad, and the ugly, served up Bourdain-style.
Bestselling chef and "No Reservations "host Anthony Bourdain has never been one to pull punches. In "The Nasty Bits," he serves up a well-seasoned hellbroth of candid, often outrageous stories from his worldwide misadventures. Whether scrounging for eel in the backstreets of Hanoi, revealing what you didn't want to know about the more unglamorous aspects of making television, calling for the head of raw food activist Woody Harrelson, or confessing to lobster-killing guilt, Bourdain is as entertaining as ever. Bringing together the best of his previously uncollected nonfiction--and including new, never-before-published material--"The Nasty Bits "is a rude, funny, brutal and passionate stew for fans and the uninitiated alike.
