THE SECRET LIFE OF FUNGI Discoveries from a Hidden World

by | Read by Alison Larkin

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Alison Larkin's narration of this ode to all things mushroom reflects the author's love of fungi. Whitely describes the many "fungal miracles" without getting bogged down in scientific details. Larkin has as much fun describing how to cook a favorite mushroom dish as she does reminding listeners that penicillin has saved millions of lives. She maintains the author's jazzed energy--whether she's talking about plastic-eating fungi living in landfills or exploring how to make bricks from compressed mushrooms grown in recycled coffee grounds. This isn't an academic tome, but it includes current research on the mycelium network that allows plants and trees to share information and nutrients. Whether you're a cook or a mushroom farmer, a truffle aficionado or a forager, this is a deliciously fun listen. J.T. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2021]
