Abstract:

"When Kingsolver and her family move from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, they take on a new challenge: to spend a year on a locally produced diet, paying close attention to the provenance of all they consume. 'Our highest shopping goal was to get our food from so close to home, we'd know the person who grew it. Often that turned out to be ourselves as we learned to produce what we needed, starting with dirt, seeds, and enough knowledge to muddle through. Or starting with baby animals, and enough sense to refrain from naming them'"--

Lyrical prose and luscious food

da booksonthebeach (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2009-10-24) Eccellente Link permanente

Two words:  turkey sex.

Barbara Kingsolver is hands down my favorite modern author.  She uses the most beautiful prose--vivid and lyrical--to write stories and characters that come to life, no matter whether she's writing fiction or nonfiction.
