Jonathan Safran Foer's "Eating Animals"
Jonathan Safran Foer's new book, "Eating Animals," is a non-fiction work about the inconsistent views Americans have about animals they eat and animals they keep as pets. It's part Pollan/Schlosser-esque exposee of the horrors of factory farming ("Eating factory-farmed animals -- which is to say virtually every piece of meat sold in supermarkets and prepared in restaurants -- is almost certainly the single worst thing that humans do to the environment.") and part personal narrative of Foer's and his family's history of meat-eating.
I read the excerpt in the NYT magazine, the one in the New Yorker, and the one in Sunday's Star Tribune. But I still haven't read the book and am wondering if any of you have? Did you find Foer's work compelling?
