So, do you enjoy Politics of the Plate? Do you occasionally come across something about our dysfunctional food system on this site that other reporters don’t or won’t cover?
If so, I would like to ask a big favor. If you ever plan to buy a copy of my book, “Tomatoland,” could you do it now. It is selling nicely, but a little more momentum would do wonders and go a long way to getting the messages of the book to a wider audience. If you have already bought the book, thanks so much. Hope you enjoyed it.
With my cap in hand,
This just in: A friend from Denver reports that a thief broke into his car and ransacked it. But the only things missing were a flashlight, a roll of quarters, and his copy of Tomatoland. Fortunately. While I admire the crook’s literary taste, he didn’t have to go to such extremes. He could have clicked on the link above. B.E.
Some excerpts from the recent New York Times review.
“Delectable and angry”
“This volume simmers like a big, bright kettle of heirloom tomato sauce.”
“But the pleasures of “Tomatoland are real. They’re Strong, subtle and sustained. Mr. Estabrook’s prose contains a mix of sweetness and acid, like a perfect homegrown tomato itself.”
–From Dwight Garner’s New York Times Review
