BORN ROUND: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater By Frank Bruni


Always pudgy, husky, chubby, plump or just plain fat, Frank Bruni chronicles his lifelong struggle to lose weight in Born Round. He tries every fad, strategy, diet and work-out regime ever developed, from being a "baby bulimic" to a self-styled "fruitarian" without lasting success.

When he learns he may become the main restaurant critic for the New York Times-paid very well to eat very well-he worries that having to consume and critique enormous meals every day of the week will destroy his last hope of achieving a healthy weight. As his beloved Italian grandmother always told him, "Born round, you don't die square". This fascinating, candid saga transcends the "foodie memoir" genre with honesty, humor and insight.
