Achingly funny and full of feeling, Eat Only When Youre Hungry follows fifty-eight-year-old Greg as he searches for his son, GJ, an addict who has been missing for three weeks. Greg is bored, demoralized, obese, and as dubious of GJs desire to be found as he is of his own motivation to go looking. Almost on a whim, Greg embarks on a road trip to central Floridaa noble search for his son, or so he tells himself. Greg takes us on a tour of highway and roadside, of Taco Bell, KFC, gas-station Slurpees, sticky strip-club floors, pooling sweat, candy wrappers and crumpled panes of cellophane and wrinkled plastic bags tumbling along the interstate. This is the America Greg knows, one he feels closer to than to his youthful idealism, closer even than to his younger second wife. As his journey continues, through drive-thru windows and into the living rooms of his alluring ex-wife and his distant, curmudgeonly father, Gregs urgent search for GJ slowly recedes into the background, replaced with a painstaking, illuminating, and unavoidable look at Gregs own mistakesas a father, as a husband, and as a man
