From the Publisher
Like many young Americans, Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his
teenage and college years oscillating between enthusiastic
carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband, and
then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly
important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to
explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to
explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions
involved with creating them.
Traveling to the darkest corners of our dining habits, Foer raises
the unspoken question behind every fish we eat, every chicken we
fry, and every burger we grill. Part memoir and part investigative
report, Eating Animals is a book that, in the words of the
Los Angeles Times, places Jonathan Safran Foer "at the
table with our greatest philosophers."
