Pollan's Interpretation of Kingsolver's Prodigal Summer

Pollan and Kingsolver tend to agree on evolution/natural selection, the interconnectedness of every aspect of the natural world and that human's role as an omnivore shapes who we are. Pollan tends to focus on the ethics and effects that humans food choices have on the natural world wheras Kingsolver addresses the animal-like urges and instintual apects of human nature especially related to sex. Does anyone have more imput on how Pollan would interpret Prodigal Summer? Ann? Peter? Any suggestions?
