Bourdain, whose book "Kitchen Confidential" helped rocket him to fame, is reported today as having hanged himself in a hotel in the French region of Alsace while in that country to film episodes of his hit CNN series, "Parts Unknown."
In a story published today on Bourdain's life and death, The New York Times wrote: "Mr. Bourdain never stopped marveling at the unlikeliness of his own success. 'I should’ve died in my 20s. I became successful in my 40s. I became a dad in my 50s,' he said in a 2016 interview. 'I feel like I’ve stolen a car -- a really nice car -- and I keep looking in the rearview mirror for flashing lights'.”
