6449638 Born Round Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater by Frank Bruni

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I’m not a huge fan of memoir, but this chronicle of Frank Bruni’s perpetual battle with his self-image, his weight, and his impulses is a recommended read for anyone who has ever struggled with the same. He writes with a light hand, dodging issues of obviously painful consequence, e.g. the prolonged illness and death of his mother, but in the end you root for him.
