The All-Important Well-Fed Giant White Man: A Memoir (Paperback)
It’s a different kind of memoir. Hilarious. Troublesome. Risky. Introspective. Revealing. And so wonderfully… human. Brought to you by the author of the widely-acclaimed Dan Pearce Creative blog, The All-Important, Well-Fed, Giant White Man will make you laugh as often as it makes you squirm (in all the right ways) as Dan shares his sidesplitting life stories, moments of incredible stupidity, colossal mistakes, and the awesome (albeit sometimes strange) lessons learned through it all.
This engaging collection of narratives shines a light on some of the most difficult and most liberating dynamics of the human experience. Dan recounts awkward childhood love, getting his bare butt glued to a log in the woods, setting his family’s house afire, ungloriously handling his first set of knockers, being ratted-out by his child, moments of douchey self-importance, and many other fantastic stories which will keep you flipping pages with wild abandon.
Odd religious mandates, betrayal, childhood bullying, a struggle to feel loveable, morbid obesity, self-harm, family and societal pressure, relationship struggles, compulsive dishonesty, dealing with infidelity… All of it led, and often in such comical ways, toward getting healthy and eventually accepting and loving himself as the overly ridiculous, always-faulted, usually-laughing, human he is.
