Title: Food: A Love Story
Author: Jim Gaffigan
Genre: nonfiction, humor, food humor
"I'm convinced anyone who doesn't like Mexican food is a psychopath." (61)
This pearl of wisdom comes from America's palest comedian: Jim Gaffigan. In his newest book he talks about his favorite subject (food) with his characteristic sarcastic, dry wit. First, he divides the US into geographic-based food groups: Seabugland, Steakland, Wineland, Blubberland, etc. Then he tackles individual meats, ethnic food, condiments desserts, breakfast, holidays and food customs. Whew! All that reading made me hungry!
