Pre-Publication Fruit Hype

May 19, 2008

Even though the book still isn’t out, there have already been a couple of interesting pieces on The Fruit Hunters. Besides that article in The Globe and Mail on fruit sex (see the next item down), there was also a sweet review on urging readers to “get out there and start demanding ice cream bananas!” It also describes The Fruit Hunters as “fascinating… it makes me want to travel to far-away places just to eat exotic fruits… A great read about an incredibly interesting topic.”

The Washington City Paper calls the book “fantastic,” “inspiring” and “wonderful.” It’s “a multilayered magnum opus as well as a very personal love song to a food group.” calls the book “something spectacular! I’ve always had an appreciation for fruit, but nothing on the level of some of the fruit fanatics and fruititarians Gollner meets in this book. It’s on the level of Diane Ackerman’s “A Natural History of the Senses,” albeit less Bath, Bed & Beyond, and more funny!” (Just as an aside, I worship Diane Ackerman).

And there was a Columbia News Service piece on the phenomenon of miracle fruit parties, which quotes me talking about “forbidden fruits.” Totally biblical!

Finally, The Globe and Mail just ran some juicy bits from The Fruit Hunters in a piece called Baby Let’s Make Fruit Salad about people who are turned on by food
