Slice Harvester: A Memoir in Pizza by Colin Atrophy Hagendorf


I requested this from NetGalley because I was drawn in by the cover and the description sounded interesting. My thoughts were basically “This guy reviewed pizza slices? I love pizza!”

The author has a unique approach to reviewing the slices, which I enjoyed. Sometimes he just reviews what the ingredients are like, other times he compares it to a moment in his life or to music (That lead to a random spoiler for Anthony Keidis’ biography incase people, like myself, haven’t read it). Hagendorf mixes in stories about his life in between harvesting trips and we learn more about how he grew up, how he got into punk, etc.

Reading about his alcohol problem was kind of sad, but reading about his recovery was better. I was happy for him and I’m happy that he had someone that stuck by him. The book ended on a happy note and I enjoyed it. If I had known about the Slice Harvester blog when it was around, I would’ve followed it.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
