Anthony Bourdain’s Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook
What do you get when you give a chef a pen? Sorry, no crème brûlée. Instead of a traditional cookbook, Anthony Bourdain threw us into the intense and sometimes downright masochistic world of a cook with his first memoir, “Kitchen Confidential.” Now a famous cookbook author and star of the Travel channel’s “No Reservations,” Bourdain takes another look into professional cooking with his newest memoir “Medium Raw: a bloody valentine to the world of food and the people who cook.” From television cooking stars to world-renowned chefs, Bourdain lays out his heroes and villains and critiques food trends, relishing in his past experiences with a perfect meal.

Welcome to the modern U.S. Congress, gridlocked on the most important issues and bitterly partisan in every step.

In the sequel to his wildly popular cult classic novel “Less Than Zero,” author Bret Easton Ellis follows those main characters through their middle-aged lives in his new book “Imperial Bedrooms.” From the tortured and brutal world of drugs, sex and confusion of “Less Than Zero,” Ellis continues the journey into the human psyche and what it looks like 25 years later. “Less Than Zero” explored the uncertainty and fragility of the teenage years; now “Imperial Bedrooms” revels that not much changes in middle-age. Can a character really mature with the author?
Bret Easton Ellis, author of six novels, including “Less Than Zero” and “American Psycho.” His newest book is “Imperial Bedrooms.”
