◆Amazon當月最佳商業選書 兩週的農場志工假期, 竟開啟一段直擊全球畜牧業最晦暗角落的探索! 一本令人心碎與坐立難安的深刻紀實 牠們的人生特別需要考驗, 牠們的存活特別需要勇氣, 而牠們的命運,更特別需要你我的關注…… 真相是一顆很難摘下,也很難拋出的蘋果。 一位前華爾街分析師,從明亮的辦公室踏入陰暗的農場, 從蹬著高跟鞋走過大理石地板,變為穿著橡膠鞋陷於一地便溺, 從此,她看見了眾多我們不忍卒睹的現實: 遭到電擊限制行動的乳牛、彼此自殺殘殺的雞、遭到殘忍閹割的小豬…… 諸多荒誕與扭曲的農場處境,在充滿血淚的文字之間悄然流洩。 於是,她做了一個人生最大膽的決定, 開啟了一段直探國際畜牧產業最黑暗角落的探索之旅, 深入加拿大的雞蛋倉庫、馬來西亞的養豬設施,甚至墨西哥的養雞工廠, 試圖從更廣泛的角度,尋求一個改善動物處境的可能。 幽暗不會獨立永存,只是因為缺少了光。 當我們試著從大自然汲取所需, 我們是否曾經想過,能不能有對這世界更溫柔、更友善的可能? 從你我心底燃起的微小善意,將會是這些動物短暫生命裡最美好的明光。 【心痛推薦 】 李取中(The Big Issue Taiwan 大誌雜誌總編輯) 李偉文(牙醫師.作家.環保志工) 林憶珊(台灣動物平權促進會理事長) 費昌勇(台灣大學獸醫學院教授) 黃宗慧(台灣大學外國語文學系教授) 裴家騏(東華大學環境學院院長、屏東科技大學野生動物保育研究所教授) 「警告:這本書可能會改變您的一生!」 ──哈爾.賀佐格(Hal Herzog),《為什麼狗是寵物?豬是食物?》(Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat)一書作者 「在讀者彷彿身歷其境的敘事中,這位生長在都市的年輕人展開了一系列工廠型農場的冒險,並成功蒐集到了許多實用――且令人坐立難安的資訊,揭開了全球產業中最為神祕的一道面紗。」 ──約翰.馬克斯維爾.庫切(J. M. Coetzee),諾貝爾文學獎得主 「這本著作既勇敢、令人著迷又深具啟發性,讀了就停不下來。書中的真實故事反覆推敲、揣度著人們的想法與感受,並揭發了工業型農業的荒誕與扭曲。在這方面,本書獨樹一幟,再無二者。」 ──法蘭西斯.摩爾.拉佩(Frances Moore Lappé),《一座小行星的新飲食方式》(Diet for a Small Planet)一書作者 「這本書以最生動的方式書寫,令讀者身歷其境。任何人只要關心自己的食物從哪裡來,都應該一讀這本精彩的著作。」 ──菲利浦.林柏里(Philip Lymbery),世界關懷農業組織(Compassion in World Farming)執行長暨《壞農業》(Farmageddon)一書作者 「這是一本極為成功的非文學敘事著作……一本優異的調查報導文學類作品。」 ──大衛.柯爾比(David Kirby),《動物工廠》(Animal Factory)一書作者 「這是一本哀傷的作品,飽含深度、思路清晰。對我們的食品體系而言,這是一份容易理解且具有教育意涵的檢視。我十分推薦。」 ──基恩.波爾(Gene Baur),農場動物救援庇護組織(Farm Sanctuary)會長 「本書充滿了義無反顧的熱情,是一本相當知性且令人信服的著作。」 ──羅傑.哈爾利(Roger Harley),農民 「本書太棒了。敘事書寫精彩,並且充滿了富有渲染力的熱情。」 ──卡比爾.塞加爾(Kabir Sehgal),《錢的歷史》(Coined)一書作者 「這本書令人大開眼界,讀者得以一覽工業型動物農業的面貌,以及它對農場動物和對消費者所產生的影響。這是一本令人信服、思慮縝密的作品,像是響亮的號角聲一樣,必將獲得讚許。」 ──韋恩.帕歇爾(Wayne Pacelle),美國人道協會(The Humane Society of the United States)會長 「本書裡充滿了深刻的個人故事與諸多食品生產業界的現況,這無疑將是一本改變遊戲規則之作。」 ──馬克.比科夫(Marc Bekoff),動物行為學家 暨《動物的情感世界》(The Emotional Lives of Animals)一書作者 「本書是一場引人入勝的歷險,不僅揭露了動物的苦難,同時更顯示工廠型農場已經帶來了迫切的公共衛生威脅。」 ──艾莎.阿赫塔爾(Aysha Akhtar),《動物與公共衛生》(Animals and Public Health)一書作者 「索妮亞.法魯奇照耀出一道勇敢的光芒,直射當代許多人認為最為迫切的議題。只要是會吃東西的人都應該要讀這本書。」 ──強納森.巴爾科姆(Jonathan Balcombe),《愉悅的國度》(Pleasurable Kingdom)一書作者 「這本書富有智慧、令人身歷其境又充滿人道關懷。作者引領著讀者檢視了這項高度爭議性的話題――農場動物的生活,並挑戰我們既有的想法,呈現這道議題的複雜性,進而激發新的思考。」 ──洛琳.強森(Lorraine Johnson),《城市農民》(City Farmer)一書作者 「本書令人驚艷又信服,賦予了讀者力量與希望。這本書將永遠改變您看待農場動物的眼光,同時也號召著一場姍姍來遲的大幅變革,並幫助您成為這場變革的一份子。」 ──羅伯.萊德勞(Rob Laidlaw),生物學家暨童書作家 「這本書完美結合了優異的寫作與深刻的理解。」 ──韋恩.羅伯茲(Wayne Roberts),《全球糧食認真指南》(The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food)一書作者 「作者勇敢無畏且敢於批判,而她內心抱持著終極的樂觀與希望,一路追尋理想的動物農業。這點提醒了我們,人類如何對待其他動物其實是一項根本的道德議題。」 ──托瓦爾.伽路里(Tovar Cerulli),《肉食者意識》(The Mindful Carnivore)一書作者 「這是一場引人入勝、穿透性強烈的旅程,深刻而精闢。」 ──凱薩琳.古斯塔夫森(Katherine Gustafson),《不一樣的晚餐》(Change Comes to Dinner)一書作者 「一本巨著的問世時常帶著改變歷史進程的力量,而本書正擁有這股強大的力量。這本著作是如此感人且具有啟發性,一方面充滿深刻的個人故事,卻又同時飽藏深刻的文化意涵,每一位讀者的生命都將為之有所改變。人們將持續談論這本作品數十年之久。」 ──約翰.羅賓斯(John Robbins),《危險年代的求生飲食》(The Food Revolution)一書作者 「任何人只要關心食品政策與動物福利議題都應該讀這本書。本書將讓您陷入深長的思考,重新檢視酪農場與雞蛋業者密集生產的問題。」 ──天寶.葛蘭汀(Temple Grandin),科學家暨《傾聽動物心語》(Animals in Translation)一書作者 「就讓作者引領您踏上她勇敢的發現之旅吧!我原先以為,關於當代動物農業生產,我所有該知道的事情都已經知道了,但是在這本讀起來津津有味的作品裡,我學到了許多新的東西,而我相信您也會和我一樣。」 ──彼得.辛哲(Peter Singer),哲學家暨《動物解放》(Animals Liberation)一書作者 「這本書的主角,是那些為我們生產食品以維持自我生計的食品業者。在故事裡,您會看到有些業者辛苦經營,而有些業者十分樂於把工作做到最好,因為這麼做能幫助他們在未來的市場上取得領先位置。您也會很高興將能以索妮亞.法魯奇的眼光閱覽這些業者的故事。」 ──丹尼爾.奎因(Daniel Quinn),《以實瑪利》(Ishmael)一書作者 出版社 商周出版 (城邦)

An eerie debut suspense novel that explores how little one man may know his own brother--and his own mind. The Maguire brothers each have their own driving, single-minded obsession. For Jonathan, it is his magnificent, talented, and desirable wife, Harriet. For Roger, it is the elaborate universe he has constructed in a shed in their parents' garden, populated by millions of tiny insects. While Jonathan's pursuit of Harriet leads him to feelings of jealousy and anguish, Roger's immersion in the world he has created reveals a capability and talent which are absent from his everyday life. Roger is known to all as a loving, protective, yet simple man, but the ever-growing complexity of the insect farm suggests that he is capable of far more than anyone believes. Following a series of strange and disturbing incidents, Jonathan begins to question every story he has ever been told about his brother--and if he has so completely misjudged Roger's mind, what else might he have overlooked about his family, and himself? The Insect Farm is a dramatic psychological thriller about the secrets we keep from those we love most, and the extent to which the people closest to us are also the most unknowable. In his astounding debut, Stuart Prebble guides us through haunting twists and jolting discoveries as a startling picture emerges: One of the Maguire brothers is a killer, and the other has no idea.

Appleby Farm was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package. Freya Moorcroft has wild red hair, mischievous green eyes, a warm smile and a heart of gold. She’s been happy working at the café round the corner from Ivy Lane allotments and her romance with her new boyfriend is going well, she thinks, but a part of her still misses the beautiful rolling hills of her Cumbrian childhood home: Appleby Farm. Then a phone call out of the blue and a desperate plea for help change everything... The farm is in financial trouble, and it’s taking its toll on the aunt and uncle who raised Freya. Heading home to lend a hand, Freya quickly learns that things are worse than she first thought. As she summons up all her creativity and determination to turn things around, Freya is surprised as her own dreams for the future begin to take shape. Love makes the world go round, according to Freya. Not money. But will saving Appleby Farm and following her heart come at a price? Appleby Farm is a charming, funny and romantic story for anyone looking for a feel-good, light-hearted read, from the author of bestselling Ivy Lane.

As comforting as hot tea and toast made on the Aga!' Veronica Henry 'A lovely, sunny, gem of a book' Alexandra Brown
