The Man Who Couldn't Eat

Imagine not being able to eat any solid foods or drink any liquids.  Imagine how the sight and smell of your favorite foods would drive you mad.  It happened to Jon Reiner.  Suffering from lifelong Crohn's disease, Reiner had emergency surgery for a torn intestine which lead to complications. His doctor recommended he eat nothing, forcing him to get his nutrition intravenously. He details the journey in an engrossing and candid memoir, The Man Who Couldn't Eat.
