By the Book: Book Club August 2020 - Tender is the Flesh

If everyone were eating (farmed) human flesh - would you? That's the question put forth in Agustina Bazterrica's provocative novel Tender is the Flesh, a story that's set in a world in which animals had to be culled because of a mysterious virus, and humans are now the only livestock in the meat industry. We discuss the ways in which this book explores ideas of consumption, propaganda and normalisation, with Bilqis Hijjas. And then in Footnotes, we celebrate George Orwell's Animal Farm, which just hit its 75th anniversary.
