My Year of Meats

Author: Ruth Ozeki

When documentarian Jane Takagi-Little finally lands a job producing a Japanese television show that just happens to be sponsored by an American meat-exporting business, she uncovers some unsavoury truths about love, fertility and a dangerous hormone called DES. Soon she will also cross paths with Akiko Ueno, a beleaguered Japanese housewife struggling to escape her overbearing husband.

Hailed by USA Today as ‘rare and provocative’ and awarded the Kirayama Prize for Literature of the Pacific Rim, My Year of Meats is a modern-day take on the Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle for fans of Michael Pollan, Margaret Atwood and Barbara Kingsolver.
