Back Bay Books Like many people, Jonathan Safran Foer - author of the internationally acclaimed novels "Everything Is Illuminated" and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" - spent his early adult years oscillating between enthusiastic carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband and then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain to his son why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with their creation. Traveling to the darkest corners of our dining habits, Foer raises the unspoken question behind every fish we eat, every chicken we cook, and every burger we grill. "Eating Animals" is a book that, in the words of the Los Angeles Times, secures Jonathan Safran Foer "a place at the table with our greatest philosophers."
