June 09, 2018 - 12:41 pm

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The book that made Anthony Bourdain famous 18-years-ago has bumped former President Bill Clinton's new novel out of the top spot on Amazon's best seller list.

It moved up some 44,000 spots in a matter of hours on Friday following the news that the TV host and chef had taken his own life.

'Kitchen Confidential: Adventures In The Culinary Underbelly' chronicled the seedy secrets of restaurant kitchen, and took Bourdain from his grueling hours in New York eateries to pop culture fame. He was in France filming his CNN series 'Parts Unknown' when he died.
