Lovely review from @BostonGlobe, calls #AWE “clear and essential” Thanks, Katie Bacon!

22 Feb

What’s really gratifying is when reviewers — whether they like my prose or not — really get the point of the book:


she comes to understand why many Americans rely on cheap, easy-to-cook, processed food.


Her tone is surer when she uses data to build her book’s main argument, which is both clear and essential: In America, for a whole host of reasons, “[e]ating poorly is easier than eating well.’’ Until we change that equation, through policy changes large and small, no amount of telling people they should buy from their local farmer will make enough of a difference.
