Powerful new animal rights novel discusses the way in which humanity treats animals and depicts what it might be like to walk a mile in their hooves.
KAPOLEI, Hawaii - In an apocalyptic thriller that exposes animal cruelty and the hypocrisy of eating meat, author Joe DeMarco paints a picture of a world brought to its knees by its craving for beef. Take an evolutionary journey through time and space in an unexpected animal rights book that includes branding, hunting, spanking, torture and cannibalism in Vegans Are Tastier (now available through AuthorHouse).
Separated into 11 recordings (short stories) with intermissions (one-page short stories between every story) from The Book of Soulless Animals, a pseudo book within the book, DeMarco takes us through what he calls the Human History of the Schism Between Carnivores and Omnivores. In a not-so-distant future a prion disease is caught by most cattle, and humans that consume their flesh contract this shaking sickness. It is the incubation period of 10-20 years that makes this Mad CuuD Disease so dangerous. The book shows us recordings of desperate Homo sapiens during this tumultuous time period. The underlying theme in all stories is animal rights, as we "watch" a human get branded, men hunt for a tiger, a teenager get cleaned like a chicken and finally a philosophical discussion about cannibalism.
