Buy the eBook online at Amazon.caBeginner’s Microbiome: a story about a man who changes what he eats. This is a biographical novella and a meditation on diet and life. It begins with experiments in dietary regimen based on the advice of authors like Rafael Kellman, Robynne Chutkan, and Elaine Gottschall, and proceeds through many moments of strangeness and beauty in everyday life.

Here’s an excerpt:

November. It is cool and sunny; 13º. Last night I had strange dreams. As though I could move between the world of the living and the dead. Dramatic and vivid, these dreams. They must be from this recent change in diet. The gut is clearly connected to the soul. Unfortunately for both, I am stuck in Oshawa, Ontario. Where there is nothing good to eat. But I must not pan Oshawa: It is surrounded by some of the region’s most beautiful rolling hills and mystical woods.
