Anthony Bourdain Given Imprint at ECCO

Bookfinds September 13, 2011 1

Bestselling author, legendary chef and TV star Anthony Bourdain will have his own imprint at Ecco, acquiring three to five titles a year. Daniel Halpern, Ecco’s president and publisher, noted that the paperback edition of Kitchen Confidential “was one of the first books we published at Ecco as an imprint of HarperCollins a decade ago. As an informal (over the table) advisor to me during this time, his intuition has been unerring–suggesting such authors as Ferran Adria and Fergus Henderson. Now he’s becoming one of us, sort of.”

Bourdain said he is looking forward to working with Halpern: “Like me, he’s passionate about words, about food, about the broad range of experiences out there–and I know from my own experience, that he’s crazy enough to take a chance on authors whom others have either overlooked or avoided.”

    I’m wondering if I’m the only one who finds this kind of odd.
