SAT Fill-In

From an abstract of Hilton Als' New Yorker review of Arcadia:

As he does in most of his plays, Tom Stoppard piles allusion upon allusion in “Arcadia” (directed by David Leveaux at the Ethel Barrymore). The play draws its voracity from historical facts, which the author manipulates in a variety of ways, but which end up feeling as intellectually nourishing as pork stuffing, and about as moving.

Is "voracity" the word he meant? Or is it supposed to be "veracity"? "Historical facts" in the same clause suggests it's the latter, but, voracity, which means gluttony, sort of fits in with the "pork stuffing."

I'm more concerned by "about as moving."
