Eating Animals

Seven years after original publication, “Eating Animals,” by the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer, remains unmatched in providing a provocative, comprehensive and deeply affecting portrait of the carnivore’s dilemma. Employing writing techniques gleaned from memoir, investigative journalism, philosophy, science and editorial essay, Foer systematically and compellingly builds his argument — that there is no moral rationale (or immoral one, for that matter) that justifies the pain and suffering our human appetites cause other living creatures. Whether you are a vegan or a hardcore beef-eater, this book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to be fully conscious about what’s going in her mouth.
