Growing up in a household of food-loving Italian-Americans, Marissa Landrigan was always a black sheepshe barely knew how to boil water for pasta. But at college, she thought shed discovered her purpose. Buoyed by animal rights activism and a feminist urge to avoid the kitchen, she transformed into a hardcore vegan activist, complete with shaved head.
But Landrigan still hadnt found her place in the world. She criss-crossed the U.S., striving to develop her career and maintain a relationship. Along the way, she discovered that eating ethically was far from simpleand cutting out meat was not the answer. As she got closer to the source of her food, eventually even visiting a slaughterhouse and hunting elk, Landrigan realized that the most ethical way of eating was to know her foodwhether meat or vegetableand prepare it herself, on her own terms, to eat with family and friends.
Part memoir and part investigative journalism, The Vegetarians Guide to Eating Meat is as much a search for identity as it is a fascinating treatise on food.
Marissa Landrigans essays have appeared in numerous publications, including the Atlantic, Salon, Guernica, and Orion, and she runs the food-themed reading series Acquired Taste. She holds an MFA from Iowa State University and is currently an assistant professor at the University of PittsburghJohnstown, where she teaches creative, professional, and digital writing.
