Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Veteran filmmaker Ruth Ozeki's novel has been hailed as "one of the heartiest and yes, meatiest debuts in years" (Glamour). It tells the story of a year in the lives of two ordinary women on opposite ends of the earth, brought together by a convergence of extraordinary circumstances. Jane, a struggling filmmaker in New York, is given her big break — a chance to travel through the U.S. to produce a Japanese television program sponsored by an American meat exporting business. But along the way, she discovers some unsavory truths about love, honor, and a particularly damaging hormone called DES that wreaks havoc with her uterus. Meanwhile, Akiko, a painfully thin Japanese woman struggling with bulimia, is being pressured by her child-craving husband to put some meat on her bones — literally. How Jane's and Akiko's lives intersect taps into some of the deepest concerns of our time — how the past informs the present and how we live and love in an ever-shrinking world.

Review:

"There is an ardent passion to the center of this novel...rare and provocative." USA Today

Review:

"It's juicy, it's tender, it's bloody, it's sizzling." St. Louis Post Dispatch

Review:

"A sexy and funny cross-cultural tale of two seemingly disparate women that is a feast that leaves you hungry for whatever Ozeki cooks up next." Newsweek

Review:

"...a novel as juicy as a good burger." Entertainment Weekly
