Product description

Review

"'Absolutely crammed with eye-opening facts and figures, a hugely readable account of the part we individually play in a global problem. Highly Recommended'" (Publishing News)

"Hungry City is a sinister real-life sequel to Animal Farm with the plot turned upside down by time in ways even George Orwell could not have foreseen" (Observer)

"Exuberant, provocative ... her desire that we understand better and think more about our food, how much we waste, how much energy it consumes and how we dispose of it - is in the real sense of the word - vital" (David Aaronovitch The Times)

"Hungry City is a smorgasbord of a book: dip into it and you will emerge with something fascinating" (Independent)

"She can précis her specialist sources briskly, and her own direct research (e.g. a mega kitchen for cooking ready meals) is lively" (Vera Rule Guardian)

Book Description

A passionate, important and visionary book about how our cities are fed, and how this affects our lives and our planet
