Newsweek wants you to read about agriculture, now

A Berry good list: Newsweek’s list of 50 books that even busy people should read now, because they “open a window on the times we live in, whether they deal directly with the issues of today or simply help us see ourselves in new and surprising ways,” includes Wendell Berry’s “Unsettling of America” (#11; “simply the most thoughtful book on modern agriculture”) and Michael Pollan’s “Botany of Desire” (#41; the magazine notes that this one was written before he “became a food-world demigod”). Some quirky other stuff on there, too, like one of the Ethicurean editor’s favorite children’s lit books, “The Dark is Rising.” (Newsweek; thanks Danger Mouse!)
