"The New York times restaurant critic's heartbreaking and hilarious account of how he learned to love food just enough after decades of struggling with his outsize appetite. Frank Bruni was born round. Round as in stout, chubby, and hungry, always and endlessly hungry. He grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic, outsize affairs."--Publisher's descripton.

The author's descriptions of his family's amazing meals and his experience reviewing restaurants are engaging and amusing. The bulk (!) of the book, however, is full of self loathing and gluttony, binges, purges and gross eating habits, which gets tiresome and sometimes even repulsive.
