Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The award-winning author of Everything Is Illuminated exposes common misconceptions about how animals are slaughtered and processed for food, drawing on sources from popular culture to national tradition to reveal how the meat industry misrepresents its practices.


Review:

"EATING ANIMALS isn't just an anti-meat screed, or an impassioned case for vegetarianism. Instead, Foer tells a story that is part memoir and part investigative report. And it's a book that takes America's meat-dominated diet to task."

National Public Radio, 11/01/2009

Review:

"[Foer's] unflinching insistence that we take stringent moral inventory of our eating habits constitutes this book's greatest strengths....[W]hile your ethical standards regarding the treatment of animals may be less (or more) exacting than Foer's, his book will, at the very least, make you think hard about what those standards are, and why you are--or are not--living by them."

Jennifer Reese, Entertainment Weekly, 11/06/2009

Book Description: Little Brown and Company, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 241 x 159 mm. Brand New Book. Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child s behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer s profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we ve told-and the stories we now need to tell.
