Social commentator and vegan Ben Shaberman collects humorous essays in book about the meat-free lifestyle

BALTIMORE, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Apprentice House announces publication of its latest book, "The Vegan Monologues" (ISBN 9781934074367), which guides readers through the world of being vegan, traveling life's path as an herbivore in a treacherous world of carnivores.
