Eating Animals

22Dec09

Jonathan Safran Foer is “a curious and objective narrator,” in Eating Animals, reviewed recently by Scott F. Parker, who begins with some very pointed questions:

“What do we value more, our morals or our pleasure and convenience? Or try this formulation: is having inexpensive meat worth the torture of billions of sentient animals a year, the destruction of the environment, and the proliferation of disease and ill health? That’s what’s at stake in our diets these days, and that’s what  Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals asks us to ask ourselves: how much do we care about what we care about? Enough to change?”
