Om boka

McPhee is a grand master of narrative non-fiction.' - GuardianInspired by the glass of freshly-squeezed juice he bought every day on his morning commute, Pulitzer Prize-winner John McPhee takes us on an idiosyncratic and remarkable journey in search of the world's most popular fruit. With his trademark style and enchanting wit, he unravels the rich history and fascinating cultivation of this botanical marvel. Beginning with the fruit's origins in Southeast Asia, McPhee travels from the great orangeries belonging to Louis XIV, to the shores of Andalucia, and through the endless groves in Florida. Along the way he introduces the people whose livelihood depends on the world's insatiable demand for the fruit: orange pickers, a citrus scientist, and an orange baron worth over $20 million.In his inimitable and endlessly compelling prose, McPhee reveals the story behind this extraordinary fruit. Your morning glass of juice will never be the same.'His genius is that he can write about anything.' - Robert Macfarlane'A delicious book . . . more absorbing than many a novel.' - Harper's
