How Could Someone Live Off Of Nothing But Fermented Food?



Finally! The Fermented Man: A Year on the Front Lines of a Food Revolution is available today.

Get your copy (physical or e-book) from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Or stop by your local independent book retailer and support small business!

(If you work at a store that doesn't normally get books like this through your distribution channels, just email sales[at]overlookny[dot]com)

Also, catch me at one of my upcoming events, including this Friday at Inquiring Minds in New Paltz, the Beer Belly in Albany on Saturday night, and the Rhinebeck farmer's market on Sunday with Oblong Books.

Some background, in case you aren't familiar with the book already:

The Fermented Man: A Year on the Front Lines of a Food Revolution follows a year I spent living off of nothing but fermented foods, while chronicling their history, cultural significance, and evolution. It demonstrates that fermented foods are so varied and ubiquitous that you could literally live off of them, if you were for some reason so inclined. It's informative. It's occasionally somewhat funny. It's contemplative. It's got drama. To say this diet was not easy is an incredibly understatement, but the structure of it — this meta-diet I came up with — allowed me to explore the sort of extreme dieting Americans are obsessed with. I didn't start the fermented diet thinking this would be the sort of diet craze I'd be taking to Dr. Phil — I wanted to use it to explore not just fermented foods, but the nature of diets themselves.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. It's a book that I very much wanted to be approachable and interesting to anyone, regardless of their level of fermentation awareness. Even if you never intend to make a jar of sauerkraut yourself in your life, I think you'll still enjoy The Fermented Man. Tell your friends, tell your family, get them all copies for their birthdays.

Besides recommending the book to people you know, and sharing on social media, another way you can give a huge boost to an author (especially a first-time author), is writing a review on Amazon. It seems like a small thing, but Amazon reviews, regardless of their length or content, immensely help a book's visibility. By taking a few minutes to write a review, you'll help to make the book something other shoppers might discover and enjoy themselves. And I'll be really grateful and probably consider you my favorite anonymous reviewer person from the internet.
