Overview

The team behind the critically and popularly acclaimed anthropological photoessays MATERIAL WORLD and WOMEN IN THE MATERIAL WORLD make their debut on our list with this oddly tantalizing book about a subject that's creeping into prominence: insects as food for people. With the distinctive blend of thoughtful cultural inquiry, intrepid exploration, and sumptuous photography that has earned them worldwide renown, the authors document the practice and history of entomophagy around the globe, discovering that insects are a nutritious, plentiful, and varied food source. From Mexico, where people celebrate the annual Jumile Festival with bug hunts and beauty queens, to China, where whole families make their livings from scorpion ranches, over a dozen bug-eating countries (including the USA!) are profiled in MAN EATING BUGS. Each chapter examines a culture through a stunning array of location photos, interviews with locals, and highlights from the authors' field journals, as well as carefully photographed indigenous recipes. A colorful, beautiful, and intelligent book.

    I want to eat bugs now!!!

    I've watched shows on t.v. showing people eating termites fresh from the grond, grubs in mexico being fried, and scorpions eaten live... i was always apalled by the thought- yet strangely facinated... I bought this book- out of pure curiosity and partially for the gross out factor... but now I'm dying to try a bug!!!! (i won't go near those damn tequilla lollypops- if i don't like the drink- why should i suck on a pop- just to taste the bug inside- it's too torturous) i wish that the photos had been focused better. a lot of the shots looked like the camera had some sort of shutter problem. But the book is marvelous... full of photos and diary like accounts of each adventure... Now if only they had made a documentary... I should make a documentary- just so i can go and taste these dishes!!!!
