Publisher's Description

In this hybrid fiction, the human consumption of chili peppers has surged well beyond a culinary indulgence in spice.

Eat A Chili interweaves a disparate cast of thrill seekers, veering between language and image to reveal a border-crossing banquet that blends the uncanny with the emotional synesthesia of the everyday. The result is a science fiction ode to the pleasurable burn kindled by the spiciest of all foods.

A bilingual publication, the book can be read in two languages and in two directions, challenging the usual linearity of the Western reading habits. Eat a Chili is a compilation of images from China, Myanmar, Thailand, Australia, the United States and Denmark that feasts upon the ways in which image-making crosses cultures and constructs meaning.
