Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A wildly funny, irreverent tale of murder, mayhem, and the mob.

When up-and-coming chef Tommy Pagana settles for a less than glamorous stint at his uncle's restaurant in Manhattan's Little Italy, he unwittingly finds himself a partner in big-time crime. And when the mob decides to use the kitchen for a murder, nothing Tommy learned in cooking school has prepared him for what happens next. With the FBI on one side, and his eccentric wise guy superiors on the other, Tommy has to struggle to do right by his conscience, and to avoid getting killed in the meantime.

In the vein of Prizzi's Honor, Bone in the Throat is a thrilling Mafia caper laced with entertaining characters and wry humor. This first novel is a must-have for fans of Anthony Bourdain's nonfiction.

Review:

"A prodigiously self-assured first novel...the author's comic vision goes beyond original. It is deliciously depraved." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"First-time author Bourdain presents a savory portion of gangster tartare spiced with salty mobspeak, coked-up chefs, wild entrepreneurs, and foul-mouthed feds, served up in the colorful ambience of Manhattan's Little Italy....The cast of this dark-humored, street-smart novel romps through Greenwich Village and Little Italy on a testosterone high in a perfect sendup of macho mobsters and feebs alike, while the kitchen antics reveal a real love for — and knowledge of — cooking, including a mouth-watering recipe for Portuguese Seafood Chowder, complete with squid, lobster, swordfish and cherrystone clams." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The dialogue is fast and furious, the gangsters vicious and fearless and the crimes are sudden and unexpected." Punch (UK)

Review:

"A fine blend of The Sopranos and The Naked Chef....If this helping from the Bourdain menu is the starter, then bring on the next course." The Herald (UK)

Review:

"Very noir, very New York...the jokes are so sharp and the style so cracking. Anthony Bourdain is not just a chef who has written a couple of books: he?s a gifted writer." The Independent (UK)

Review:

"The combination of fine food and sordid slayings makes an irresistible novel, but perhaps not one to savor while dining." Denise Perry Donavin, Booklist
