My Year of Meats by Ruth OzekiTitle: My Year of Meats

Author: Ruth Ozeki

Call #: OZE

Jane, a Japanese-American documentary filmmaker, is enlisted to produce a show called My American Wife.  The show will be shown in Japan and its goal is to get Japanese women to cook more meat.  Akiko lives in Tokyo with her brute of a husband who handles the show’s advertising.  The novel alternates between these two women as each comes to understand the corruptness of the beef industry including the injection of meat with synthetic estrogens.  This unique, well written novel is one of my favorites.
