    Story
    (2695)

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Christopher Allen walker says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"

    Overall

    Wow. What an amazing accomplishment. A mesmerizing book read by one of the most dynamic readers I?ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. I actually went through withdrawal when it was finished!! This book has a great deal of heart and an amazing (and addictive) epic quality that makes it difficult to put down. The story twists and turns like a mountain road. Along the way you get to travel (both physically and metaphysically) and even learn a thing or two.

    This book stays with you long after after you've turned your MP3 player off........

    Jane, a struggling filmmaker in New York, is given her big break, a chance to travel through the United States to produce a Japanese television program sponsored by American meat exporters. Meanwhile, Akiko, a painfully thin Japanese woman struggling with bulimia, is being pressured by her child-craving husband to put some meat on her bones, literally.

    Emily says: "Entrancing story, unbelievable narration"
    "an excellent tale"
    Overall

    I have to confess that I purchased this book based on its funky postmodern cover..... It took me a while to get used to reader Anna Fields voice (which initially I found a little dry) but after about 30 minutes I was hooked and I really began to enjoy the intelligence and depth she brought to the reading.

    My Year of Meats is:
    part documentary on paper,
    part exploration of cultural difference and intersection,
    and fully an emotionally engaging tale of one womans journey for truth(s) both professional and personal.

    I highly recommend this novel.
