    "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." These simple words go to the heart of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. Humans used to know how to eat well, Pollan argues. But the balanced dietary lessons that were once passed down through generations have been confused, complicated, and distorted by food industry marketers, nutritional scientists, and journalists-all of whom have much to gain from our dietary confusion.

    A unique three-person reading. Vile Bodies is both a celebration of the hedonism of the young and a warning to those who believe that their licence to indulge is infinite and unquestionable.

    A whole host of characters are introduced throughout Waugh's thought-provoking and often highly satirical story, which follows protagonist Adam through the perils and pitfalls of securing his marriage to Nina Blount, his fiancée.

    listened to this after watching brideshead revisited. probably a dumb move. nevertheless difficult to follow, silly, very short, not worth the credit...
