In The Cannibals Guide to Ethical Living Mykle once again tackles an age-old philosophical quandary, this time is it. .I think Mykle Hansen has done the impossible with this book - convince people that cannibalism is a great idea. It sure as hell makes a lot more sense than veganism.

In The Cannibals Guide to Ethical Living Mykle once again tackles an age-old philosophical quandary, this time is it ok to eat rich people? I won't give away the answer to this question, you'll have to read the book yourself to find out about the morality of eating the rich. I'm reading this again.

Mykle Hansen is a true master of satire, alongside the greats such as Swift and Twain. I'm afraid if I don't, he'll eat me. I might actually welcome that unfortunate occurrence however, because I've read his brilliant book "The Cannibal's Guide to Ethical Living" and I have never been more convinced that there's definitely a moral argument to be made for eating human flesh

In a remote and dangerous corner of the ocean, the renowned gourmet and food journalist Louis De Gustibus is held captive by an elite chef-and vegan cannibal-named André. But André would never eat his dear friend Louis. Andre only eats millionaires! Over a five star French meal of fine wine, organic vegetables and human flesh, a lunatic delivers a witty, chilling, disturbingly sane argument in favor of eating the rich. It's a darkly hilarious dessert to Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma and Foer's Eating Animals-a tale of good and evil, of rich and poor, of manners, madness and meat.

Andre is no ordinary chef. He is known for preparing dishes of such rarities that millionaires from around the world come to his floating restaurant in the middle of nowhere just to partake in his delicacies. Little do they know that they will soon be the next dish on the menu. His background and millionaire cannibalism philosophy ooze forth in his monologue to his friend/food critic/prisoner, Louis. The absurdities are often funny and at times appear so logical that you find yourself wanting to take a dip in the millionaire sauce.

This is the second book I have read by Sir Hansen, and I have to say that I love his writing. Not only does he come up with unique subjects, but Hansen's humor is well executed. I am a huge bizarro fan and have read many books by numerous authors. There is almost nothing that I have read that I didn't care for, but I have to give Mykle Hansen some major props; I really feel that he is probably the best writer of the bizarro authors. I am not referencing story lines or saying that the other writers have poor grammar (I love all the bizarro authors). No, that is not what I'm talking about. Just discussing quality of writing (word choice, sentence structure, wit, etc)...he really has a talent.

All I can say is: Read Mykle Hansen.

Mykle Hansen is a true master of satire, alongside the greats such as Swift and Twain. I have to say that. I'm afraid if I don't, he'll eat me. I might actually welcome that unfortunate occurrence however, because I've read his brilliant book "The Cannibal's Guide to Ethical Living" and I have never been more convinced that there's definitely a moral argument to be made for eating human flesh.

The book follows Louis, a disgraced world-class chef as he delivers a long and powerful monologue to his captured friend and colleague, the food critic Andre De Gustibus. Hansen's prose flows off the page like an expertly delivered and well-acted one-man show. The authorial voice is so strong, so perfectly executed, and so hilariously unique that it's difficult not to start reading the book aloud to yourself. This is a book that's equally comfortable being read or performed.

The book is divided into chapters via the delivery of various dishes and courses to the poor captured Andre, as Louis tries to explain his position. As this is going on, Hansen cleverly reveals the history between these two men, and how they are inextricably linked through their love of cuisine. The clues are planted throughout the book, but the wonderful way in which the book finally reveals the full scope of the relationship between Andre and Louis is pure genius. As readers, we are also treated to a slightly more omniscient point of view than poor Andre, so we get to watch as the subtleties of his slowly crumbling life add up, and we get to experience the terror of Louis's "business partner" Marco stalking the deck just above the pair, psychotic, deranged, dangerous and hungry for fillet of food critic.

The fictional aspects of the story aside, the book also reads as a classic argument style philosophical treatise, which is where it truly succeeds as satire. It's easy to understand that a social debate is raging here, chopped up in the same pot as the carrots and potatoes of a rollicking great story. No heavy-handed thematic bashing here - instead Hansen willfully pulls us into a very likeable (but insane) character's world and we're forced to listen. As we do, we're forced to also examine our eating habits, our place in the food chain, and most of all our socioeconomic status and how that affects who are the predators and who are the prey. Hansen also uses a number of very specific details that show a true understanding of the world and culture. The reader is given an interesting back-story for the inhabitants of the nearby island, a great number of excellent food and wine references, and of course a deep character mystery to study.

The writing is extremely strong, the plot manic and bizarre, and the characters likeable. Mykle Hansen at his best: This is grade A meat, right here. Highly recommended!

The superb game dishes are prepared fresh on the spot, and feature actual produce if you so desire at the exclusive floating bistro, L'Arche. Chef Andre serves a kick-ass Heiress Dissolu, Mock Oxtail Soup and Dessert Juste. My prestigious job as a reviewer and critic has given me the opportunity to eat many fancy-pants main courses in stuffy restaurants, all that cater to elite clients, but L'Arche is literally head and shoulders above the rest. Call me low-class for eating rare parts, but if you haven't yet tried millionaire testicles in cream sauce -- well, you just haven't lived. The aroma will make your mouth water.

Mykle Hansen's latest book is good. stomach-turning fun. And the utterly compelling writing that made me read this book in one enchanted (but queasy) sitting isn't nauseating for the obvious reasons. Hansen posits a hilarious, but yet utterly believable dystopia. The madman protagonist's arguments don't feel nonsensical -- they feel eerily familiar. Though the book is absurd, its political astuteness is right on. At the core of the book are the half-baked (pun intended) arguments we all hear (about ecological conservation, "ethical consumerism," social responsibility, colonialism) from people in this uncertain age, simmered and reduced to their rightful, disgusting absurdity. The only comparable satire of our age that I've read is Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shytengart and Mykle Hansen's prose is just as rollicking and delightful. The melancholy moralism and razor sharp wit in this book made me think, actually, of Voltaire. A scalding, skewering satire of our age. Ugh, more puns. Mykle Hansen's best book yet.

If you're looking for the latest in culinary adventures, look no further. Cannibal food porn is really a largely untapped genre. Famous author Mykle Hansen truly nails the food and wine pairings. Although the Bandol is too young to be opened (or exist...this may be set slightly in the future), that is made up for with some other well aged bottles.

A fun and disturbing read.

Give this as a gift with a bottle of Bandol, we did!
