“Graham Greene would be one,” the Travel Channel host tells the Chicago Tribune in a wide-ranging interview. “I’m a huge fan. There’s so many ... Malcolm Lowry, Hunter S. Thompson, Nick Tosches, I read a lot. Just the perfect crime novel is a thing of beauty. There’s much to be learned from Elmore Leonard or George V. Higgins ... fantastic writers.” (Via Gadling)

I love that literature is still being praised.  It seems like books and authors (really classical pieces) are being overlooked, but I’m happy to hear Anthony Bourdain is supporting reading.  And I’ll have to read some of these!  I’m slacking!

Fun interview. And Bourdain scores a bullseye when discussing Alice Waters.
