  • The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table

    What if you can't afford nine-dollar tomatoes? That was the question award-winning journalist Tracie McMillan couldn't escape as she watched the debate about America's meals unfold, one that urges us to pay food's true cost-which is to say, pay more. So in 2009 McMillan embarked on a groundbreaking undercover journey to see what it takes to eat well in America. For nearly a year, she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have just listened to the book for 10 minutes. It seems like a very sincere and intelligent storytelling which I like very much. But the narrator's voice has such a sneer in it that I need to constantly fight the distraction. I'd really love a more proper voice to go with the book.

    From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and author of the essay collection Shiksa Goddess, comes a dazzling debut novel, a comedy about New York's urban gentry living in a post-9/11 world, the arbiters of fashion and the doyennes of charity balls; about the rich and the nouveau rich(er), the glamorous and the desperate-to-be.

    I can't believe two people gave this book one star. I listened to the book three times and found it enjoyable every time. If you like park avenue princess stories like I do, this book is apparently with a lot of brain and irony. I also think the character development is done very well. One thing i can say for sure is that this book will not bore you.
