The Vegan Monologues Asks the Burning Question: Is That a Carrot in Your Pocket?
Date:6/25/2009

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. Whether explaining how vegetarian guys get the girls, exploring an addiction to Chinese takeout, or being sequestered in the "garden salad zone," author Ben Shaberman's gentle sense of humor sheds light on what it means to go meatless. But Shaberman also reflects on his Jewish heritage, Pink Floyd concerts, fornicating grasshoppers, and being chased by wild dogs.

"The Vegan Monologues" collects Shaberman's essays in a first book that will put a smile on the faces of tofu-huggers and meat-eaters alike. From social absurdities to his own foibles, Shaberman balances reflections on life as a vegan with, well, just life.

Shaberman is a well-established essayist and commentator with articles in a number of prominent publications, including The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Sun, The Des Moines Register, VegNews, and Vegetarian Times. He also has been heard on National Public Radio.

"Smart, wry, and just a bit cynical, Shaberman parlays a unique sense of humor into a readable book that elucidates the joys - and tribulations - of the meat-free lifestyle," said Aurelia d'Andrea, editorial director at VegNews Magazine.

According to "Vegetarianism in America," a 2008 study conducted by Vegetarian Times, 3.2% of adults in the U.S., or 7.3 million people, are vegetarian. The study further indicated that 1 million of those vegetarians are vegans, people who consume no animal products at all.

"It's a growing community," said Shaberman, who lists Dave Barry and Garrison Keillor as influences. "My appreciation for animals and the environment are common themes. And though I write about vegan-related experiences, my observations are often universal."

"Ben's warm writing takes equal aim at social absurdities and his own vulnerabilities," said Aaron Henkin, a co-producer at WYPR (NPR in Baltimore). "This book is for all of us who find ourselves searching for meaning in the routine triumphs and disappointments of our everyday lives."
