Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater by Frank Bruni has finally been released. If you're a foodie and a book lover, you can attest to all the hype and hoopla that's been surrounding this memoir for months. With its release, the world will finally get a good look at the covert restaurant critic from The New York Times, while he dishes about his history and passion for food. Weighing in at more than 350 pages, you'll learn how Bruni's Italian family treated cooking and eating with a zealot-like fervor, how he's been a yo-yo dieter for years (he went on the Atkins diet with his mother when he was just a kid), and he reveals his tricks and pseudonyms while skulking about the New York dining scene. Leavened with wit and good humor, no wonder heavyweight memoirists like Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, and Anne Lamott have blurbed the book. Order a pizza, crack open the cover and dig in!
