This book was not at all what I thought it was going to be Frank Bruni became the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004 and I expected something along the lines of a food memoir And while the book jacket description calls Bruni s relationship with eating tricky what it did not prepare me for was that this is really the story of Bruni s lifelong eating disorders complete with graphic descriptions of what happens when you take four times the recommended dosage of Ex Lax in order to purge your system of an overly large meal Bruni in fact seems to be something of a natural bulimic having learned at the age of 18 months that if his mother wouldn t make him a third hamburger thus pushing his consumption to than a pound of ground beef at one sitting she would feed him if he vomited up what he d already eaten Clearly this isn t a Ruth Reichl bookWhat is most striking to me about Bruni s story is that he is completely oblivious to how he s presenting himself and his family It seems clear that almost everyone in his family has a peculiar relationship with food His grandmother and great aunts were perpetually in competition with each other to see who could cook the most food for the extended family and lay claim to the being the best at preparing the largest number of their favorite dishes This pattern was repeated with Bruni s mother and her sisters in law one of them even copying Bruni s grandmother s bizarre acuisition of a second secret kitchen in the house so that she could cook gigantic meals while leaving guests with the impression that no mess has been made in the process At the same time that Bruni s mother was shoving mammoth portions at her children she would also encourage him to go on one or another fad diet with her As an adult Bruni continued his pattern of bulimia periods of extremely restrictive dieting methamphetamine use strange eating rituals and eventually complete surrender to binge eating his way up to nearly 300 pounds Meanwhile his brother Mark learned to cut his food up into the tiniest of morsels and chew them into dust and his sister Adele used her pregnancies as an excuse to eat lessAlthough Bruni got his weight under control by 2004 the year he was appointed the Times food critic it seems that whatever psychological issues he had remain unresolved He continues to have occasional food binges that he seems unable to control as well as an exaggerated fear that if he goes up even one pants size he will become completely undesirable as a romantic partner and thus die alone surrounded by empty Nutter Butter packages There s a dopey couple of pages at the end which I would guess came at the behest of an editor who thought they better shoehorn an inspirational message into an otherwise sadly unaware memoir wherein Bruni opines that the difference between himself as a fat person and a fit one is that he s finally realized he has to eat less and exercise and that food is not love leaving me to conclude that it s a good thing that Bruni writes features for the Times and not news In Care Of The Sheriff story of an unpredictable journalistic odyssey and provides an unflinching account of one person’s tumultuous often painful lifelong Alaskan Nights struggle with his weight How does a committed eater embrace food without being undone by it Born Round will Soldier Caged speak to every hungry hedonist who has ever had to rein in an appetite to avoid letting out a waistband and it will delight anyone interested in matters of family matters of the heart and the big role food plays in bo.
