How Are You Peeling?
Author: Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers

Jeffer's and Freyman's book about vegetables and their feelings really opened the door to a whole world of emotional depth that we never imagined. While the book broke new ground, it was only a matter of time before vegetables took to writing for themselves. Why should they rely on humans to tell the world how they're peeling? It's time to get the information directly from the source!
Well, wait no longer. We have officially gotten word from the first vegetable author and apparently this particular eggplant is peeling particularly religious. A couple from Boothwyn, PA sliced open this eggplant to discover it's divine message.
The opinionated eggplant is now in discussions with various publishing companies who are eager to attain the right to publish the first book from this articulate vegetable. Apparently, Tyndale House Publishers, the publishing company behind the best-selling Christian adventure series, Left Behind, has the early edge.
And writing is just the tip of the iceberg. The eggplant will also be making the talk show rounds and can be seen next on Larry King Live. He will be the appearing with Christopher Hitchens (author of God Is Not Great) and the two will discuss the role of religion in the 21st Century. He will also be a guest judge on the Emmy-nominated Top Chef and is auditioning for a cameo appearance as one of the ingredients in the sequel to Ratatouille.
