    Part travelogue, part culinary history, all capitalist critique—podcaster and comedian Jamie Loftus's New York Times bestselling debut takes us on a cross-country road trip in the summer of 2021, and explores what hot dogs say about American now

    Hot dogs.

    Poor people created them. Rich people found a way to charge fifteen dollars for them. They’re high culture, they’re low culture, they’re sports food, they’re kids’ food, they’re hangover food, and they’re deeply American. You can love them, you can hate them, but you can’t avoid the great American hot dog.

    Raw Dog: The Naked Truth About Hot Dogs is part investigation into the cultural and culinary significance of hot dogs and part travelogue documenting a cross-country road trip researching them as they’re served today. From avocado and spice in the West to ass-shattering chili in the East to an entire salad on a slice of meat in Chicago, Loftus, her pets, and her ex eat their way across the country during the strange summer of 2021.

    So grab a dog, lay out your picnic blanket, and dig into the delicious and inevitable product of centuries of violence, poverty, and ambition, now rolling around at your local 7-Eleven.
