As Anthony Bourdain says of this new collection, "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." When You Lunch with the Emperor collects Bemelmansâs work under the headings of Childhood, Work, and Play. Readers will enjoy their lunch with the Bemelmans!
About: A sequel to Hotel Bemelmans features a new collection of essays about grand hotel life and describes such adventures as the author's decision to let Parisian criminals baby-sit his daughter, his capture by the Gestapo while he bore red-painted toenails, and his discovery of the only restaurant with toilets in the Amazon jungle.
