This essay compares the turns and costs of latter-day consumer appetite whether the Amazon as rainforest or cattle as prime foodway and as expressed in novels by Karen Tei Yamashita and Ruth Ozeki. The one, on the essay’s argument, turns upon Yamashita’s treatment of the Brazil rainforest as ecological fact-fantasy, the other on Ozeki’s pastiche of US media advertising. Both, for Adams, are to be compared as writers who bring a wariest satiric eye to how the earth’s resources risk fatal endangerment.
