In his late thirties, Graham was diagnosed with autoimmune celiac disease--an allergy to gluten, one of the most common ingredients in the American diet. Here he describes his adventures and misadventures in attempting to understand and cope with that challenge. MacLeod Andrews's narration is warm, calm, and skillful as he navigates Graham's sadness at saying farewell to the familiar aromas and textures of all things gluten. However, the author's tone sounds at once entitled and condescending. Those negatives cannot be fully overcome by Andrews's thoughtful, precise performance. The discussion provides valuable information on this autoimmune disease, but one must make an effort to overlook the author's attitude of privilege.
