Why am I so hideously behind the times in my Chicago-based-hip-cool reading? I mean, I'm Not the New Me came out a year ago and I just got around to reading it.
Wendy McClure's new book is The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan which consists of hideous 1974 Weight Watchers recipe cards and her humorous commentary. The book comes from her online collection of the same.
I'm Not the New Me is a memoir, inspired by and derived from her blog Pound. Pound is about, sometimes, McClure's weight loss and body issues, but also about the other things in her life, too. And the book is that, too.
