Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This charming narrative about the road to self-realization (and maybe even true love) stars smart, funny, and unemployed Moira Shapiro. Moira grew up as the daughter of restaurant owners in the privileged world of Washington D.C. Her intelligence got her into a top college but her increasingly disabling OCD has left her unemployed. When Moira reads the updates of more successful college acquaintances in the alumni magazine, she pens a far shinier version of herself and sends it off. She meets Caitlin and Geoff, alums she's always admired from afar, and explains away the piece as a spoof, a send up of glossy self-aggrandizing entries. Caitlin, as a performance artist, loves Moira's gutsy take on alumni bragging, but she hates that Geoff seems smitten with Moira. Other issues test the tentative friendship of Moira and Caitlin. While Moira makes daily progress in regulating the complex world of OCD, Caitlin takes shocking advantage of Moira's struggles. Will Moira find love and the job of her dreams or will forces beyond her control wreck even more havoc than her OCD? Debut author Becky Wolsk's empathy, insights, and humor make Moira's plight, and the book's ultimate resolution, sweet, sassy, and satisfying.

I was attracted to "Food and Worry" because I love food and I think I have mild OCD. The book was what I had hoped for: mouth-watering food references, realistic vignettes of living with OCD, and more. What surprised me the most about "Food and Worry" -- and the reason why I recommend it highly -- is that it's really very funny while revealing the trials of OCD.

I cheered for Moira and applauded her victories as she dealt with OCD, rivals, family, friends, and finding the right man. This is a smart and savvy book, beautifully written and very funny.
