My Year of Meats, Paperback / softback Book

My Year of Meats Paperback / softback

Part of the Canons series

Paperback / softback


In a single eye-opening year two women, worlds apart, experience parallel awakenings.

In New York, Jane Takagi-Little lands a job producing a Japanese television show sponsored by an American meat-exporting business, exposing some unsavoury truths - about the meat industry and herself.

In Tokyo, housewife Akiko Ueno diligently prepares the recipes from Jane's programme.

Struggling to please her husband, she increasingly doubts her commitment to the life she has fallen into. As Jane and Akiko both battle to assert their individuality on opposite sides of the globe, they are drawn together in a startling story of strength, courage and love.
