WE all need an editor. And believe me, we edit Tony. As I'm sure he would tell you.
This isn't so much a question as an observation. I used to write for a living (pretty dry stuff - lawyer stuff). But I also love to read. And I know good writing when I see it. Anthony Bourdain is a very talented writer - and I enjoy what he writes - in his books - and in Gourmet (even though we have had a couple of big fights here over trivial matters - we are not exactly tight buddies). Only thing is - he needs a good editor - someone to remind him from time to time that he doesn't have to be the Dean Martin of food writing. The substance of his writing is really terrific without the boozy aura. Robyn

his crime novels is great
Well, I'd say they're entertaining, and you can tell he had a great time writing them.
