About Save Room for Pie
In poems and songs, limericks and fake (or sometimes true) news stories, Blount talks about food in surprising and innovative ways, with all the wit and verve that prompted Garrison Keillor, in The Paris Review, to say: "Blount is the best. He can be literate, uncouth and soulful all in one sentence."

About Roy Blount, Jr.

Born in Indianapolis and raised in Decatur, Georgia, he now divides his time between western Massachusetts, New York City and New Orleans, with his wife, the painter Joan Griswold, and their cat, Jimmy.
