The Urban Hermit: A Memoir : When Sam graduated from Yale in 1995, his next stop was a bar stool. But after five years of drinking and hard living, he weighed 340 pounds, was flat broke, and the IRS had caught up with him. In a desperate attempt to save himself, Sam decided to limit himself to a budget of eight dollars a week and eight hundred calories a day. He called it the Urban Hermit Plan. He thought he would do it for a month. Instead, he embarked on a demented year-long journey, lost 160 pounds, got a career as a reporter, flew to Bosnia on assignment, and met the woman who would later become his wife. The Urban Hermit is a funny, irreverent story about desperate living, as told by a man who should have known better.
