Despite the fact this is published by Fantagraphics it certainly is in no way a "Graphic Novel". No drawings, just words and a great many words are found within these 792 pages. Theroux's latest wonderful book is hands down my favorite book (so far) of 2017, something like Marcel Proust meets Anthony Bourdain.

Britney Spears loathes meatloaf and all lumpy stuff. Arturo Toscanini hated fish. Ayn Rand despised salads. Alexander Theroux sEinstein s Beets is a study of the world of food and food aversions. The novelist and poet probes the secret and mysterious attitudes of hundreds of people mostly famous and well-known toward eating and dining out, hilariously recounting tales of confrontation and scandalous alienation: it contains gossip, confession, embarrassment, and perceptive observations."
