From the author of Everything is Illuminated comes a memoir-cum-investigation into food habits, motivated by Jonathan Safran Foer’s contemplation about which diet he should raise his son on.
The book follows Foer both into an industrial turkey farm where the animals are being reared in disturbing conditions and a humane farm, where he realizes animals need not suffer in the pre-slaughter.
Though his conclusion is ill defined, it reflects the multifaceted natures of arguments for and against eating meat.
Foer fuses first-hand experience with his personal history, philosophy, popular truth and myth, and scientific research in this engaging, motivating inquiry into the ethics of omnivorism.
