In Carnal Appetites, Elspeth Probyn charts the explosion of interest in food - from the cults that spring up around celebrity chefs, to our love/hate relationship with fast food, our fetishization of food and sex, and the impact of our modes of consumption on our identities. 'You are what you eat' the saying goes, but is the tenet truer than ever? As the range of food options proliferates in the West, our food choices become inextricably linked with our lives and lifestyles. Probyn also tackles issues that trouble society, asking questions about the nature of appetite, desire, greed and pleasure, and shedding light on subjects including: fast food, vegetarianism, food sex, cannibalism, forced feeding, and fat politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A wide-ranging, highly theoretical study using a cultural studies approach, Probyn's work raises some very interesting and provocative points.."
-"Gastronomica, Winter 2002
"Probyn always surprises her reader, as she moves from analyzing eating as a social concern to eating as a new way of looking at power. This is an original and important book, one that more than lives up to what we have come to expect from Probyn."
-Lawrence Grossberg
