A travel guide, which Anthony Bourdain was working on when he passed away, is set to be released in October 2020.

Anthony was working on World Travel: An Irreverent Guide with his assistant of nine years, Laurie Woolever, who also co-wrote Anthony’s final cookbook, Appetites.

She has continued to work on the book since his death in June 2018, and has used a transcription of a conversation she had with him about what the book should be like.

“I hope that people will still have fun with it when it comes out, but it has been a very different kind of project,” she told Kat Kinsman on Food & Wine’s Communal Table podcast.

“It's hard and heavy to be co-authoring a book with a ghost, and to be interviewing the people that he was closest to about a man that's no longer with us. I think just being able to feel that I deserve whatever it is the space to see, 'This is hard, emotional work,' has been really great in a way.”

The book shares travel advice that Anthony picked up both in his own time and while he was working on his CNN show, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.

World Travel: An Irreverent Guide is due for release 13 October, but you can pre-order it for £30.62 on Amazon now.
