His relationship with eating was difficult and his struggle with it began early. When named the restaurant critic for The New York Timesin 2004, he knew he would be performing one of the most watched tasks in the epicurean universe. And with food his friend and enemy both, his jitters focused primarily on whether he'd finally made some sense of that relationship. A captivating story of his unpredictable journalistic odyssey as well as his lifelong love-hate affair with food, Born Roundwill speak to everyone who's ever had to rein in an appetite to avoid letting out a waistband.
