It's a big victory for vegans that the Korean novel The Vegetarian has won the 2016 Man Booker International Prize for fiction. Author Han Kang and her translator Deborah Smith received the award at a ceremony in London. The book is about a Korean woman who decides to stop eating meat, and her struggles with her family to accept this decision. It's an allegory about the old, traditional Korea, and the new, progressive Korea.

While hauntingly rich in imagery, it's a wonderful read that we recommend for vegans and vegetarians sick of reading nonfiction. You can read a good story and still educate yourself. Readers can expect to be more emotionally in tune with the struggles and psychological difficulties of adopting a vegan or vegetarian diet or lifestyle.

Forks Over Knives

Posted by Unicorn Goods

Forks Over Knives is a documentary that has been adapted into two books. All three explore the effects of an animal-based diet on health, and look at a plant-based diet as a way to live better and longer.

Many people credit this film with raising the public consciousness for veganism. We are lucky to have one of the authors of the book, Gene Stone, as an advisor. Shop th books based on the documentary Forks Over Knives below by clicking on the image:
