“No Reservations: Narnia,” a Triumph of Anthony Bourdain Fan Fiction
Anthony Bourdain’s reaction to this fan fiction mash-up of his book No Reservations and C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia is so classic Bourdain:
“This is astonishingly well written with an attention to detail that’s frankly a bit frightening,” he said in an e-mail. “I’m both flattered and disturbed. I think I need a drink.”
Love and miss him!
