In that acclaimed book, Bourdain, who was born in New York City and raised in Leonia, New Jersey, candidly described his personal struggles, including drug use that led to his dropping out of Vassar College. The shit that drives addiction doesn’t just go away when you get clean, or when you get rich, or when you get famous… I am so very sad.
