Comedian Jim Gaffigan’s latest book, Food: A Love Story, is available in hardcover as of today, October 21.
If you couldn’t tell, the memoir is dedicated to Gaffigan’s “most intimate food memories, opinions, and fantasies that will keep you laughing all the way to the refrigerator.”
Even if you’re not too familiar with Gaffigan’s work, you may still recognize him as the human being most associated with Hot Pockets.
You can read an excerpt of Food: A Love Story to help decide whether or not it’s right for you, on Jim’s website.
In the brief glimpse, Gaffigan dubs himself the “Ray Lewis or Terry Bradshaw of eating,” and explains why you should never take a thin person’s restaurant recommendation seriously (“Overweight people have chosen food over appearance. When a fat person talks about a great place to get a burger, I lean in.”)
If you agree, buy the book sometime.
