Save Room for Pie
Food Songs and Chewy RuminationsDownloadable Audiobook - 2016
As a lifelong eater, Blount and food always got along easy--he didn't have to think, he just ate. But food doesn't exist in a vacuum; there's the global climate and the global economy to consider, not to mention Blount's chronic sinusitis, which constricts his sense of smell, and consequently his taste buds. So while he's always frowned on eating with an ulterior motive, times have changed. Save Room for Pie grapples with these and other food-related questions in Blount's signature style. Here you'll find lively meditations on everything from bacon froth to grapefruit, kobe beef to biscuits. You'll also find defenses of gizzards, mullet, okra, cane syrup, watermelon, and boiled peanuts; an imagined dialogue between Adam and Eve in the Garden; words and stories from Robert E. Lee, Louis Armstrong, and Frederick Douglass; and of course some shampooed possums and carjacking turkeys.
