I finished reading "My Year of Meats" today, and thought it was everything you want in a novel: strong female characters, interesting facts about a serious problem (commercial meat production) and a look into a culture not my own. I didn't like to see a woman beaten by her husband, but I trusted Ozeki to let her escape in the end. The author and the protagonist are both documentary filmmakers, and this book would probably be coming to a theatre near you if it didn't have the propensity to turn its readers into vegetarians. We know what happened to Oprah.
