Tiny Hot Dogs: A Memoir in Small Bites

From awkward schoolgirl to Caterer to the Stars, Mary Giuliani weaves together a collection of hilarious memories, from professional growing pains to her long journey to motherhood, never losing her sense of humor and her love for everyone's favorite party food, pigs in a blanket.Mary's utterly unremarkable childhood was everything she didn't want: hailing from a deeply loving yet overprotective Italian family in an all-Jewish enclave on Long Island. All she wanted was to fit in (be Jewish) and become famous (specifically a cast member on Saturday Night Live). With an easy, natural storytelling sensibility, Mary shares her journey from a cosseted childhood home to the stage and finally to the party, accidentally landing what she now refers to as "the breakthrough role of a lifetime" catering to a glittery list of stars she once hoped to be part of herself.Fresh, personal, and full of Mary's humorous, self-deprecating, and can-do attitude against all odds, you'll want to see where each ...

Tiny Hot Dogs: A Memoir in Small Bites Reviews

  • Amy Bryant

    Very sweet and charming story. Mary is super funny too!

  • Kate Vocke

    Mary Giuliani may just be the coolest and funniest person I've never heard of. No she's not related to THAT guy, and she may not be a celebrity like she wanted to be when she was a kid - but hot dog does her life makes for a fantastically funny book! I devoured every tiny morsel of this memoir and then I licked the plate clean. OK that sounds gross, but seriously - I want to hang out with her, I want to attend her parties, I want her to be one of my lady lobsters! (You'll have to read it to find ...more

  • Mediaman

    This is a half-baked book that has some of the ingredients of what could be tasty but ends up just something unfilling that you nibble on. It's extremely short (230 tiny half-pages), with six-page chapters, lightweight, repetitive, at times confusing, and fails to deliver on the promise of complete stories about her celebrity encounters. Almost no famous people are named in the book--in two cases she names people she almost met (John Goodman and Bill Murray) but didn't and in another case (Rober ...more

  • Kassie

    Fun little morsel of a book.

  • Katie

    A book of name dropping

  • Alyssa

    A generous three. It had a lot of potential, but never quite got there.

  • Mary C

    What an absolute lovely, quirky, and then serious memoir from what sounds like a chef I would have in my home any day! I'm not a celebrity, so that won't ever happen, but I will follow a couple of her recipes and serve them to friends and tell them all about this book!

  • AJ

    A very shallow tangentially food-related memoir written by a seemingly rather stupid, vapid and annoying celebrity-crazed stalker lady. Full of r/thathappened. Very weak for the genre. Skip this, none of these stories are strong enough that they really needed to be told.
