“Eaters must understand that how we eat determines how the world is used.” They will with the help of this book from the Kingsolver-Hopp family. And why not make the narration of this book a family affair—since it’s a chronology of “a year of conscious food choices involving abstinence from industrial food”? The process includes vegetable growing and canning, cheese-making, poultry-raising and -slaughtering, and “locovore” shopping. Hopp, Kingsolver’s husband, supplies scientific asides and practical suggestions on how to make better use of the world around us. Daughter Camille suggests recipes and meal plans. The book is so jam-packed with information that listeners will want to take notes. There’s a Web site, as well. And the farmyard sound effects are not to be missed. D.P.D.
