Typhoid Mary - Anthony Bourdain

Typhoid Mary by Anthony Bourdain is a fascinating true story. In an homage from one cook to another, Bourdain follows Mary through the kitchens of New York, putting a human face to a desperate and unintentional murderer, and examines a time, and a life, with his inimitable style. In 1906, at a prosperous Long Island summer home, a family falls ill and typhold is diagnosed. When Dr George Soper is called in to find the source of the contagion, he notices that the household cook has gone missing. She is Mary Mallon, the woman who would become known as Typhoid Mary.
