In Mycophilia, Eugenia Bone explores the various roles that fungi play in our culture, from delicacy and curative, to eco-restorative and psychoactive. Highly informative, the book serves as a good starting point for those interested in mushrooms, either as a means to cuisine, or as a messenger of insight.

Through her blend of personal narrative and thoughtful research, Bone sheds light on an eccentric community of Mycophiles who celebrate mushrooms as both meals and mavens, and who often see them as the intriguing metaphors of a more integrated way of life.
