Best selling novelist Jonathan Safran Foer has left fiction behind to write an eye-opening book on the truth about factory farming and ‘eating animals’.

‘Eating Animals’ is the culmination of a three year, one man investigation into factory farms. Spurred on by becoming a father, and with a desire to know what he was putting on his son’s plate, bestselling novelist, Jonathan Safran Foer decided to look into where his food came from. What he discovered compelled Safran Foer to leave fiction behind and write a book exposing the truth of the animal production industry. In a powerful interview on ABC’s Lateline he discusses ‘Eating Animals’ and what drove him to write this important book.
