Dinner with a Cannibal: The Complete History of Mankinds Oldest Taboo (Santa Monica Press), chronicles the history of cannibalism, and researching the juicy, stomach- churning story was a delicious task for author Carole Travis- Henikoff.
She says, At first it was disgusting, but Ive never had as much fun! I got to have doctors over to lunch not for lunch and pick their brains!
The book outlines nine types of cannibalism, including survival cannibalism, iatric cannibalism prescribed by a doctor and endo-cannibalism, or eating your own dead.
Travis-Henikoff calls cannibalism the oldest eating habit on the planet, and though itll always be taboo, she isnt against putting a person on her plate.
She says, If I was starving and it was the only way to survive, Id do it in a heartbeat.
Dinner with a Cannibal is out now.
