Patricia Volk's delicious, charming, and wildly funny memoir lets us into her big, crazy, loving, cheerful, infuriating, and wonderful family, where you're never just hungry-you're starving to death, and you're never just full-you're stuffed. Volk's family fed New York City for one hundred years, from 1888 when her great-grandfather introduced pastrami to America until 1988, when her father closed his garment center restaurant. All along, food was pretty much at the center of their lives. But as seductively as Volk evokes the food, Stuffed is at heart a paean to her quirky, vibrant relatives: her grandmother with the "best legs in Atlantic City"; her grandfather, who invented the wrecking ball; her larger-than-life father, who sculpted snow thrones when other dads were struggling with snowmen. Writing with great freshness and humor, Patricia Volk will leave you hungering to sit down to dinner with her robust family-both for the spectacle and for the food.… (més)

Great, great read full of weirdness, wisdom, wit and good food. ( )

As I said to my sister while trying to describe this book... it is NOTHING like our family, it is EVERYTHING like our family. What a joy to read!! ( )

In this book there area lot of names & it gets very hard to follow them at points. But I found this didn't matter - what their role in the family was wasn't the important part, it was the impact they had on the writer & her life. Volk has brought together key family tales & memories to paint a picture of the unit she grew up being a part of. Its the first book in a while to make me cry & really think about certain things in my own relationships, so while it may not have broken any literary ground, it touched me. ( )

I thought this memoir would be about running a restaurant, full of funny and perhaps poignant anecdotes. But it's really about love and family relationships. The chapters on her father are especially touching and memorable. I'm very glad I read this work. ( )

Too much family. Not enough food. ( )
