Harrison, with his love of books and excessive interest in hugging, couldn't have been less like Pop, and when it became clear that he was not able to kill anything very well or otherwise make his father happy, he resolved to become everything his father was not: an actor, a Presbyterian, and a doctor of philosophy. But when it was time to settle down and start a family of his own, Harrison started to view his father in a new light, and realized - for better and for worse - how much of his old man he'd absorbed.
Sly, heartfelt, and tirelessly hilarious, The World's Largest Man is an unforgettable memoir.

Poignant and funny
I enjoyed this as a man from the south, but I think it would be enjoyable even to those without large Southern fathers. Key shows a lot of grace in coming to terms with his relationship with his dad - in acknowledging that we are all human - flaws and all.
