Everything and everyone eats; it’s the cycle that connects us most thoroughly with the world around us. In this volume, authors and artists reflect on the implications of breaking bread, from the ritual of sharing a meal to the brokenness of our current food system, from the joys of eating food we participated in growing to the fascination of learning about the food cycles of other species. Join us on this culinary, cultural, and interspecies adventure.
