Comedian, author (DAD IS FAT), and narrator Jim Gaffigan gives an applause-worthy performance of his book, which explores food and his love affair with it. His observations about food are entertaining; he says crustaceans are the bugs of the sea, for example. And his delivery is outstanding. With a slight Southern accent and strong timing, he brings out the ironic hilarity associated with national and international menus and food practices. Gaffigan’s informal narration style fits his affable-sounding personality. He’ll have the listener hooked on his humor before the appetizers arrive, and his serious contemplations will also provide the listener with some food for thought. M.F.
