Frank Bruni was born round: stout, chubby, and hungry. He grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic affairs and where he learned one of his foremost qualifications for his future career: an outsize love of food. When Bruni was named the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004, he knew enough to be nervous--it is one of the most closely watched tasks in the food world--and he had spent his career covering politics, political campaigns and the Pope. Yes, he was the Times Rome Bureau chief and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, but did his love affair with food qualify him to be one of the most loved and/or hated tastemakers in the food world? His memoir 'Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater' traces his unusual path to becoming a restaurant critic, and is a brutally honest, sometimes funny, often painful tale of his complex and lifelong struggle with food.
"Frank Bruni has written a food memoir for our time, plumbing the depths of our personal and collective eating disorders. By turns shocking and hilarious, 'Born Round' is as addictive as Chinese Sesame Noodles and as satisfying as Grandma Bruni's lasagna."
Words & Wine is sponsored by the Pan Pacific Hotel, Seattle Magazine, Ste Michelle Wine Estates, Theo Chocolate and The Warren Report.
