Genre: Nonfiction; Author: Ryan Nerz; Status: In Season; Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin

To the Dogs
Nerz traces competitive eating events back to their origins: a 1916 PR campaign for fledgling Nathan’s Famous hot dog stand on NYC’s Coney Island.

Winging It
He vividly describes 2004’s Philadelphia Wing Bowl — the unlikely winner was 100-pound Sonya ”The Black Widow” Thomas.

Final Serving
Nerz provides a solid rationale for competitive eating without ignoring the health hazards.
