Publisher's Summary

As a lifelong eater, Blount always got along easily with food - 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.

Critic Reviews

"[Author and narrator Roy] Blount's relaxed, comfortable style and soft Southern accent make listeners feel as if they're sitting on the front porch on summer's night, sipping sweet tea and swapping stories with a friend." (AudioFile)
