* Ozeki is a deeply intelligent and humane writer -- Alice Sebold, author of Lovely Bones * One of my favourite novelists -- Junot Diaz * There are not many novels that can justify the label "extraordinary"... It grapples with a quite astonishing pantheon of themes... The writing is witty, intelligent and passionate Independent * Smart, funny, irreverent Guardian * A joy to read Elle * Ozeki offers a remarkably fresh view of the rocky road many women travel to love and motherhood Glamour * Romance, agri-business, self-discovery, cross-cultural misunderstanding - it takes a talent like Ruth Ozeki's to blend all these ingredients beautifully together. My Year of Meats is a sensitive and compelling portrait of two modern women -- Arthur Golden, author of Memoirs of a Geisha * A meaty novel about relationships, cultural boundaries and the beef industry ... Ruth Ozeki masks a deeper purpose with a light tone ... My Year of Meats is delightful in many ways -- Jane Smiley * A wildly entertaining story that addresses a smorgasbord of social issues Chicago Tribune * Character gems and exquisite plotting make this a treasure to read Kirkus Reviews * Wonderfully wild and bracing... A feast that leaves you hungry for whatever Ozeki cooks up next Newsweek
