Reason #7: Ted Conover says I’m gutsy, scrappy and hard-working (and he liked my book.)

15 Feb

REASON #7 to buy The American Way of Eating comes from Ted Conover:

“Tracie McMillan is gutsy, scrappy, and hard-working—you’d have to be to write this book. The American Way of Eating takes us local in a new way, exploring who works to get food from the field to the plates in front of us, what they are paid, and how it feels. It’s sometimes grim but McMillan doesn’t flinch; I especially appreciated her openness in telling us what she spent in order to get by (or not). A welcome addition to the urgent, growing body of journalism on food.”

The book goes on sale Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Please buy it.

And if you are in New York, come celebrate with me at Housing Works to talk about “The Anti-Foodie Foodies” with Amanda Hesser, James Oseland, Annia Ciezadlo and Rev. Devanie Jackson, moderated by the lovely Erica Wides.
