THE AMERICAN WAY OF EATING Undercover at Walmart, Applebee's, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table

by | Read by Hillary Huber

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Tracie McMillan has followed up her research into "food deserts," places with limited grocery options, with an undercover trip along the food chain. Hillary Huber narrates McMillan's first-person account with an emphasis on personal quirks, making it sometimes comic as well as informative. Huber is generally good at capturing the way people talk. Between first-person stories, McMillan includes stats and observations and history lessons on food culture game-changers such as King Kullen's supermarkets and Howard Johnson's Restaurants. While much of the account has a self-deprecating humor, McMillan's journey includes a shocking incident of sexual assault. McMillan and Huber blend humor and conviction well to make people think more deeply about food and their eating habits. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2012]
