It doesn't seem fair that someone who loves to eat even the weird, wiggling, strange food as well as all the usual suspects, is well under 300 lbs. Calvin Trillin's dry wit together with his discriminating yet open-minded taste buds make this book and audio recording delicious. Do not read or listen to this book if you are hungry. It's not that it will make you any hungrier. It will either kill your appetite totally or get you hunting for what can only be found in New York or Kansas--definitely not in the Deep South (although we do have some amazing barbecue).

I am a chef and into food but this guy's writing just does not do it for me.
