Letters: Mourning Anthony Bourdain, a Culinary Explorer

CATHERINE FREIMAN
ANN ARBOR, MICH.

To the Editor:

As a psychiatric clinical nurse specialist, I understand why people contemplate suicide when they see it as their only way out of intolerable suffering. To know that Anthony Bourdain must have been experiencing such suffering hurts my heart.

I still remember how his episode on Iran changed my whole way of thinking about that country. His way of seeking and finding joy wherever he explored made him special. How sad to think he was unable to see beyond whatever suffering he was enduring.

To the Editor:

The question of whom to invite to my “fantasy” dinner party — if I could invite five living people — has always intrigued me. Anthony Bourdain was always at the top of my list, which included Jim Cramer, Oprah Winfrey, Clint Eastwood and Mandy Patinkin. With Anthony’s sad and untimely death, my dinner party plans have been canceled. I will miss him terribly.

SUSAN LEVINE, SCARSDALE, N.Y.

We also produce podcasts focusing on facets of American society. Premiering soon will be a new series called Whiskey and Immigrants, in which we sit down with real immigrants to hear their stories. Shortly after that we will debut a podcast unlike any other, called Unite or Die. We’re keeping the details of that one under wraps, but we think it will truly benefit society.
