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."

Jonathan Safran Foer is the author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. His books have been translated into thirty-six languages. Everything Is Illuminated received a National Jewish Book Award and a Guardian First Book Award, and was made into a film by Liev Schreiber. Foer lives in Brooklyn.

    I purchased this book because a year ago I started taking a hard look at what I was eating and where the food comes from that is available to us in the supermarket. I have read many books on the subject of food lately and came across a review of this book on another website. Whether you are vegetarian or a meat eater this book displays information from all sides of the meat industry without trying to change sway the reader to one side or the other. Eating Animals informs the reader on how meat is produced, the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is something in this book for the meat eater and the veggie lover.
