Jonathan Safran Foer

A provocative look at the subject of eating

The writerJonathan Safran Foer presents Comer animales, the Spanish language version of Eating Animals. The author of the successful novels Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close started writing this book when he found out he was going to be a father; his thoughts about how to feed his child led him to investigate what we eat and how we eat it. Combining philosophy, literature, science and his own detective work, the author explores the origin of our eating habits, revealing the price that the environment and the Third World pay in order to satisfy our appetite.
