Publisher Description

We wait in lines around the block for scoops of cookie dough. We photograph every meal. We visit selfie performance spaces and leave lucrative jobs to become farmers and craft brewers.

Why? What are we really hungry for?

In Hungry, Eve Turow-Paul provides a guided tour through the stranger corners of today’s global food and lifestyle culture. How are twenty-first-century innovations and pressures are redefining people’s needs and desires? How does “foodie” culture, along with other lifestyle trends, provide an answer to our rising rates of stress, loneliness, anxiety, and depression?

Weaving together evolutionary psychology and sociology with captivating investigative reporting from around the world, Turow-Paul reveals the modern hungers—physical, spiritual, and emotional—that are driving today’s top trends:

  • The connection between the “death” of the cereal industry and access to work email on our smartphones
  • How posting images of our dinners on social media both fulfills and feeds our hunger for human connection in an increasingly isolated world
  • The ways “diet tribes” and boutique fitness gyms substitute for organized religion
  • How access to round-the-clock news relates to the blowback against GMO foods
  • Wellness retreats, astrology, plant parenthood, and other methods of easing modern anxiety
  • Why “eating local” might be the key to solving not just climate change, but our current global sense of disconnection

Quotes

  • “Turow-Paul combines great storytelling with a hard look at many trends and beliefs that are not based on facts. She artfully explains why they pull us in anyway, the psychological needs they fill, and how we can bring order and sanity to one of the most fraught topics today: food.”

    - Dr. Daniel J. Levitin, neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author of The Organized Mind
  • “With substance, style, and a keen eye for data, Eve Turow-Paul uses food to illuminate the psychology of an entire generation. Hungry is a deeply insightful book that also happens to be more delicious than dessert.”

    - Daniel Gilbert, professor of psychology at Harvard University and author of Stumbling on Happiness
