Product Details

Praise

“Required reading.”—New York Post
 
“Ambitious in scope… both fascinating and disturbing… I’ll never walk through the produce aisle the same way again… [Banana] is at once a political and economic treatise, a scientific explication, and a cultural history.”—The Boston Globe
 
“Clear, engaging… admirable… part historical narrative and part pop-science adventure.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“[A] brilliant history.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer
 
“A fascinating and surprising history of our most ubiquitous fruit.”—Edward Humes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Monkey Girl and Mississippi Mad
 
“The history of oil has nothing on that of the yellow fruit.”—Salon.com
