Editorial Reviews


“As the latest in the elegantly produced Edible Series, Game is intellectually stimulating, necessarily concise, gorgeously illustrated (Cranach the Elder’s glorious ‘Stag Hunt’; exquisite Japanese prints; lustful Cruikshank cartoons), and of just the right size to stuff in a stocking.”
(Times Literary Supplement)

“A slim but fascinating volume. In five chapters, Young Lee provides a diverting synopsis on the history, eating, catching, and cultural significance of game. The book is brimming with facts, figures, and anecdotes.”

About the Author

Paula Young Lee is a faculty fellow at the Center for Animals and Public Policy at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in Massachusetts. She is the author of Meat, Modernity, and the Rise of the Slaughterhouse and How to be a Homeless Frenchman.

feral cats hunted for food? in australia?

by whom. that's an urban myth if I ever heard one. if a book starts with that....

'game' meat. aborigines 'might' eat it but I've never heard of such a thing. if you're hungry, anything that runs fast enough is likely to become 'game' but I have to wonder about the authors information. chinese resturants are the only ones I've ever heard of people eating cat in this country.
