The word "cookbook" simply doesn't capture the multivalent wonder that is Bryant Terry's *The Inspired Vegan*. This book is better described as a manifesto on how to re-imagine the growing, preparing, and eating of creative, nourishing, compassionate food as transformative activities that propel us toward individual and communal flourishing. Expect to be dazzled as you leaf through his gorgeous recipes that are somehow still simple to prepare, his micro-essays that expose the intertwined oppressions of animal exploitation and institutional racism without a whiff of self-importance, and his selection of musical accompaniments that enable one to hit that kitchen-prep groove without ever losing sight of the fact that eating is always already a political act--that the autonomy that one realizes (or does not realize) through good cooking is a big part of the difference between striving and barely surviving in someone else's system and experiencing material and spiritual fulfillment on one's own terms. Here is the work of a rare and true philosopher--a person who has found a way to materialize our best ideas into the lived pursuit of wisdom in our daily lives. In crafting this exciting, unpredictable, bracing bricolage of food, wisdom, music, beauty, compassion, and justice, Bryant Terry mobilizes six of life's most compelling forces toward the end of lifting creatures up in the everyday--one and all, human beings, animals, and the planet. Astounding!
