In a single eye-opening year, two women, worlds apart, experience parallel awakenings. In New York, Jane Takagi-Little has landed a job producing Japanese docu-soap My American Wife! But as she researches the consumption of meat in the American home, she begins to realize that her ruthless search for a story is deeply compromising her morals. Meanwhile, 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, love.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ozeki is a deeply intelligent and humane writer -- Alice Sebold, author of Lovely Bones
One of my favourite novelists -- Junot Diaz
There are not many novels that can justify the label "extraordinary"... It grapples with a quite astonishing pantheon of themes... The writing is witty, intelligent and passionate * * Independent * *
Smart, funny, irreverent * * Guardian * *
A joy to read * * Elle * *
Ozeki offers a remarkably fresh view of the rocky road many women travel to love and motherhood * * Glamour * *
Romance, agri-business, self-discovery, cross-cultural misunderstanding - it takes a talent like Ruth Ozeki's to blend all these ingredients beautifully together. My Year of Meats is a sensitive and compelling portrait of two modern women -- Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha
A meaty novel about relationships, cultural boundaries and the beef industry . . . Ruth Ozeki masks a deeper purpose with a light tone . . . My Year of Meats is delightful in many ways -- Jane Smiley
A wildly entertaining story that addresses a smorgasbord of social issues * * Chicago Tribune * *
Character gems and exquisite plotting make this a treasure to read * * Kirkus Reviews * *
Wonderfully wild and bracing... A feast that leaves you hungry for whatever Ozeki cooks up next * * Newsweek * *
