Description

'Schlosser is a serious and diligent reporter...' '[Fast Food Nation] is a fine piece of muckraking,

alarming without beling alarmist.' —Rob Walker, New York Times Book Review 1/21/01 'Eric

Schlosser's Fast Food Nation is a good old-fashioned muckraking expose in the tradition of The

American Way of Death that's as disturbing as it is irresistible....Exhaustively researched,

frighteningly convincing....channeling the spirits of Upton Sinclair and Rachel Carson....Schlosser's

research is impressive--statistics, reportage, first-person accounts and interviews, mixing the

personal with the global.' —San Francisco Chronicle 'An exemplary blend of polemic and

journalism....A tale full of sound, fury, and popping grease.' —starred review Kirkus Reviews

'Schlosser is part essayist, part investigative journalist. His eye is sharp, his profiles perceptive, his

prose thoughtful but spare; this is John McPhee behind the counter....' —Washington Post

'...everywhere in his thorough, gimlet-eyed, superbly told story, Mr. Schlosser offers up visionary

glints....For pure, old-fashioned, Upton Sinclair-style muckraking, the chapters on the meatpacking

industry are masterful.' —Observer ''Fast Food Nation' is investigative journalism of a very high

order. And the fit between the author's reporting and his narrative style is just about perfect. The

prose moves gracefully between vignette and exposition, assembling great quantities of data in

small areas without bursting at the seams.' —Newsday 'Schlosser establishes a seminal

argument for the true wrongs at the core of modern America.' —Publishers Weekly, Starred

'Reminiscent of Upton Sinclair's 'The Jungle'.....' —Boston Globe 'Schlosser has done huge

amounts of intense, on-the-scene reporting, and he backs up his concerns very convincingly. He

presents incredibly resonant images and statistics and observations the reader is unlikely to

forget.' —San Jose Mercury News ''Fast Food Nation' should be another wake-up call, a supersize

serving of common sense....' —Atlanta Journal Constitution 'Part cultural history, part

investigative journalism and part polemic...intelligent and highly readable critique....' —Time Out

New York 'Fast Food Nation is the kind of book that you hope young people read because it

demonstrates far better than any social studies class the need for government regulation, the

unchecked power of multinational corporations and the importance of our everyday decisions.'

—USA Today 'Fast Food Nation presents these sometimes startling discoveries in a manner that

manages to be both careful and fast-paced. Schlosser is a talented storyteller, and his reportorial

skills are considerable.' —Hartford Courant Read more 'New York Times' Bestseller Schlosser

has a flair for dazzling scene-setting and an arsenal of startling facts . . . 'Fast Food Nation' points

the way but, to resurrect an old fast food slogan, the choice is yours. 'Los Angeles Times' In 2001,
