Publisher’s Description: 

A cross-cultural tale of two women brought together by the intersections of television and industrial agriculture, fertility and motherhood, life and lovethe breakout hit by the celebrated author of A Tale for the Time Being

Ruth Ozekis mesmerizing debut novel has captivated readers and reviewers worldwide. When documentarian Jane Takagi-Little finally lands a job producing a Japanese television show that just happens to be sponsored by an American meat-exporting business, she uncovers some unsavory truths about love, fertility, and a dangerous hormone called DES. Soon she will also cross paths with Akiko Ueno, a beleaguered Japanese housewife struggling to escape her overbearing husband. Hailed by USA Today as rare and provocative and awarded the Kirayama Prize for Literature of the Pacific Rim, My Year of Meats is a modern-day take on Upton Sinclairs The Jungle for fans of Michael Pollan, Margaret Atwood, and Barbara Kingsolver.
