• The adventures of the original bad boy of the New York restaurant/ hotel underbelly continue. Whether writing about the backstairs misadventures of cooks and waiters or travel to faraway lands, Bemelmans is always funny, insightful and dead on target. No one has ever surpassed the master.

    Anthony Bourdain
  • A complete original

    Saturday Review
  • An artist in both line and words ... with talents of gold

  • Very entertaining ... an excellent story-teller

    Sunday Times
  • One reads Bemelmans not as one reads a serious novelist but for the sheer momentary pleasure given by his evocation of atmosphere and mood
