The series, My American Wife!, initally seems like a dream come true for Jane as she criss-crosses the United States filming a different American family each week for her Japanese audience. Naturally, the emphasis is on meat, and Ozeki has fun with out-there recipes such as rump roast in coke and beef fudge; but as Jane becomes more familiar with her subject, she becomes increasingly aware of the beef industry's widespread practice of using synthetic estrogens on their cattle and determines to sabotage the program.
Cut to Tokyo where Akiko Ueno struggles through the dull misery of life with her brutish husband, who happens to be in charge of the show's advertising. After seeing one of Jane's subversive episodes about a vegetarian lesbian couple, Akiko gets in touch and the two women plot to expose the meat industry's hazardous practices. Romance, humor, intrigue, and even a message--My Year of Meats has it all. This is a book that even a vegetarian would love. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A delightful read, surprising at every turn, funny and tragic, absurd and wise. And great sex scenes, the kind you want and the kind you don't. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bob T.
Seemed like a simple enough premise, but became absolutely fierce, and more fierce. You do not have to be a vegetarian to appreciate it.Published 2 months ago by Susanne Lodgen
This book was hard to read subject wise but well written and compelling. Made me think twice about eating non-organic meat.Published 2 months ago by Nobody
I first read this book 20 years ago. It's stuck with me since then. I bought it for my son who lives in Ag Country now.Published 2 months ago by Jamie Holter
I thought that this book not only went into food. Democracy, like us people being able to know what's being put into our food, but different topics such as marriage and gender. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Daria Georgia
