Description
Examining the role of mushrooms as delicacy, curative, poison, and hallucinogen, food writer and cookbook author Eugenia Bone finds that a greater understanding of fungi is key to facing challenges of the 21st century. Whether your interest in mushrooms is culinary, scientific, recreational, or entrepreneurial, this book is an eye-opening journey through the vast and bizarre world of fungi and their role in the complex yet graceful interplay of life on earth.

"Mycophilia is the most engrossing, readable book about mushrooms and the science of mycology I have ever read. This is the book to give to people interested in mushrooms, whether they are beginners, longtime mushroom hunters, or professional mycologists."—Gary Lincoff

"One of the most beguiling books I've read this year. A generous sprinkling of amateur photos only adds to the charm of Mycophilia.... Weird details, combined with a flair for startling analogies, brighten even the most rambling passages of Bone's book.... Set her on the hunt for fungi in the aftermath of a forest fire and Bone can make you shiver in the slovenly vacuum of a campsite she compares to a cold fireplace.... Bone deploys the precise, uncommon vocabulary of the best naturalists. Bone's enthusiasm would prompt even the most languid armchair ecologist to take a new interest in [mushrooms].... Each and every fungus contains properties that, as described by Bone, sound almost magical.... A delicious, surprising and dizzyingly informative book."—NYTBR
