Rob Kovitz’s Pig City Model Farm was one of my reading moments of 2009. Found on the library booksale trolley. Like a cadaver, once sliced full of organs and explanation. Before I sliced it, I had no understanding what it was and figured it was a handbook on pig farming that would be very useful someday in the way I scoop virology textbooks from the pavement. Lookit I said to the library woman, no one will want this pig farming manual and I only had fifty cents and I would love this pig farming manual. In praise of confusion and poverty!
