The Face on Your Plate: The Truth about Food Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson shows how food affects our moral selves, our health, and our planet. Masson investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork and urges readers to consciously make decisions about food.

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of "When Elephants Weep" explores humans' relationship with the animals they call food. Masson investigates how denial keeps people from recognizing the animal at the end of their fork as well as each culture's distinctions among animals considered food and those that are forbidden.

Synopsis:

"It's a challenge to create transformative moments with books, but [Masson] does it."--Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
